Poor wireless range and poor upload and download speed

I have a Y650 and can only connect to to my wireless network if I'm within 5 feet of my wireless router.  If I walk more than 5 feet away it cannot connect to the wireless router (I am pinging the router)

 

Also, my upload and download speeds are very slow.

 

I do have another laptop that is connecting fine throughout the house and the bandwidth speed on that laptop are 10 times faster than what I'm seeing on my Lenovo.

 

Please help.

Re: Poor wireless range and poor upload and download speed

...more information that may be relevant:

 

I had to One Key my system and reinstall the OS.

 

I had already deleted the ReadyComm application and the laptop works fine when it's connect with a LAN cable.

 

Is there a wifi antenna built into the laptop what needs drivers?

Windows 7 (the laptop shipped with Vista, but they send me a Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade - which I applied after the OneKey restore)
