signal quality mis-reading

Hi there all. I have a weird problem I'd love some help with. I have a desktop and a laptop at home, both connected wirelessly to my modem. My desktop singal quality reading is always 100%, but my laptop, even when placed right next to the router, only ever gives a maximum reading of

86%, almost as though it's limited in some way. Does this ring any bells? Are there some setting I can change on the laptop? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Both machines are about a year old and running Vista HP. Many thanks, Tim

The signal quality readings are neither reliable nor comparable -- they are only a very rough and often inaccurate guide.
