Hi,

Try resetting your Router. Meaning restore it to factory settings.

Hi Ida,

If you have not done this yet, please remove all wireless profiles stored in your computer.
Easy Way to Delete Wireless Network Profile in Windows 7
Re add your SSID (wireless network) that you're trying to connect to with the correct encryption.

Have you updated your Wi-Fi adapter's driver to the latest by downloading it from the manufacturer's site?

If none of the above suggestions worked please install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector from one of your wireless computers. Double click the Xirrus Icon on your Desktop, Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached the file here.

An update will be nice.

You get an okay signal but could have been better. The only work around that I can suggest you is to upgrade your Wi-Fi adapter and get something with a High-Gain antenna. I have these at the home. Another option, if your Belkin router has external Antennas, you may buy the external high gain antenna for your Belkin router and they are quite reasonable.

Other ways to consider is to get Wireless Externders/Repeaters.

Also, have a read here on how to improve your wireless network and boost signals.

but it's not the router's fault, because when i called a friend and told him to take his Laptop here and when we searched he find my own router with 100% signal and he also find my neighbours, but with my laptop i just find my own router with 60 - 70% , so something is wrong at my Laptop - Wireless card,
any suggestions ?

I didn't say it was your router's fault. I gave you a link on what type of Wi-Fi adapter might work for you.
Here it is again....Amazon.com: GSKY High Power 1000mW 27dBm 802.11b/g USB Wireless WiFi LAN Adapter With High Gain 7dBi Panel Antenna: Electronics
