Although there is a small change in the graph following this change its not very significant. Still only recording 25MB when other pc/laptop are receiving near 60MB.

I think I will take the pc up to the router, connect directly and see what I'm getting...

The settings would be on the routers set up page. The hub is the same as a switch.
You should be able to get to your routers set up page by typing 192.168.0.1 in your browsers URL.

The other machine using channel 1 and is using wireless G which doesn't have a very strong signal so might not affect you very much at all. The DNS you are using is also suspect and it should be pointing to the routers default gateway but it's not for some reason.

Did you set a DNS server on your machines IP page? If there is a channel 1 being used then you would still want to turn off channel bonding which is on, and try going to channel 6. Trying different channels is more about signal quality and not really about signal strength.

As far as signal strength, the distance and the number of walls between you and the access point has everything to do with that. The only way to increase your signal strength is to move closer to access point, or eliminate the walls between you and the access point or move the access point closer to that particular machine.

I haven't been able to find any 'tool' that I can use for SNR, however I have found the info from the router:

I have limited knowledge and don't really understand this fully.

I'm not sure what any of that means but as I mentioned before if you want better signal strength you will need to follow the directions I posted earlier.
