If you can see your wireless access point, but jsut have bad reception, then the problem is the hardware, not the software. It may also be that the signal is stronger than is reported.

Try pinging your router from each computer and see if there is a large difference in the numbers reported:
Assuming your router's IP address is, run this in a terminal:

ping a minute or so, press ctrl+C to stop it, and you will get something like this:
--- ping statistics ---
5 packets transmitted, 5 received, 0% packet loss, time 4007ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 5.690/6.105/7.689/0.794 msLook at the % packet loss, and the average time, and see if there is a major difference between the two wireless adapters
