Why is my signal so poor?

I have a Linksys WRT54G2 router right outside of my room and i only catch 2 bars of signal strength. all the other laptops in my household catch excellent signal strength and their range is way farther than where my laptop is from my router. However when i place the laptop right next to the router it receives excellent strength, but as i move away it starts to lose signal. Sometimes it would disconnect at a random time also. my laptop is a dell studio 1555 running on windows 7 and my wireless card is a Dell Wireless 1397 802. 11g Half Mini Card.

I'm thinking its the wireless card but i purchased a dell mini running on xp with the same exact wireless card and had no problem with the signal strength. Please help me fix this issue. Thanks.
