Microsoft or Linux for good wifi

hello i have got an Acer Aspire 5536 laptop and it came with Vista but i changed to Linux Mint but my wifi signal is on about 71%
i have to be right on top of my sky hub to get a signal,this has only been happening over the last couple of months,i phoned Acer who want 28 plus post and package for a new wifi card so i did not bother.
do you think i would get a better signal if i installed windows 7 ultimate which i have been given?
thank you.
