Your card itself doesn't have that power.
If you go into your router administration panel:
Enter Password (default is "admin" if you haven't changed it)
You can change the channel you're broadcasting on. Some have better connections than others.
Also, I know in my case, we ended up getting a Range Extender. It's a little thing that we plug in downstairs in another room that catches the original network and retransmits it.

I mean, your card itself can't affect the strength, as far as I'm aware.
I have mine set to Channel 11. Basically, the Linksys guy told me that sometimes one channel gets funky.
However, it could also be that the connection is simply too weak (hence the Range Extender). For example, rather than hooking up across my entire house, my connection is currently coming from the room directly below mine.

For some reason it works very well in Windows XP
