I'm having problems with the wireless signal. I used to have windows on this system before and it used to have around 80-90% signal strength, i'm about a few meters away from the router. But under linux i get around 55-70% signal strength. Do i need new Drivers or an update, what's going on.

Thanks.

first make sure your drivers are updated and make sure that your system is updated. sounds like a driver issue.
