Poor or no wifi connection on dell pc, but strong wifi connection on other devices

Hi, my Dell PC is receiving either an extremely poor signal from the router or no signal at all.Initially I thought this may be because the PC is upstairs and the SuperHub is downstairs. Although it is directly under the Dell.

 

But my laptop and my phone or my PS3 all recieve strong connections, it's just the Dell PC that is recieveing a very weak connection. Help very much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

what are you using as the wireless adaptor on your PC, if its a USB device it will always be slow, mine was getting 12 mbps i fitted a pci card to the computer, it only cost £17 new, and i instantly got 50 mbps

hope this helps
