The wireless antenna for most laptops connects to the wireless board and the is threaded through the hinge and around the outer edge of the display to allow for maximum length. It is possible that the antenna wire may may become broken at the display hinge resulting in a very short antenna, thus a very weak reception.
Firstly download WiFi Analyser from Google Play store and compare you WiFi with others in your area. This will enable you to change the channel. Change channel by logging into your router - 192.168.1.1.
Try moving your router to a more central place in your home and use the analyser to check if any improvement.
Next try a wireless extender. This will drop your speed a little but give a stronger signal in weak areas.
Also try power line adapters.
If you are using a few devices ensure that you are not mixing wireless g and n products at same time. Using a g product will mean that your whole wireless will be running at that speed even when your other device is n. If you need both connect another g router to one of the n router LAN ports with dhcp disabled. That way you can have the two devices connected at the correct speed.
Some routers will let you connect a bigger aerial which could boost you reception. Some devices have very poor wireless antennas - seems you what you pay for in this area.
Are you very far from wireless router? Also check which wireless signal is the strongest and if that is yours. Unsecured w/less are usually weak in residential areas. Again is your internet high speed?
you are seeing it strongly connected to the ROUTER---try unplugging the router for a few minutes and plug it back in----Does the netbook "SEE" the network? entered correct ssid? Is the wireless switch enabled on the netbook?
Turn the Wireless Lan on its the button on the front edge, then search for wireless networks find your SSID usually the strongest signal and click connect you will need to input your WEP or WPA-PSK depending upon your router
