Why is the wireless adapter of my T440p weaker than that of my T61p?

My T440p wireless adapter cannot well connect to weak or normal signal. I sent it back to fix it. However, little improved. Any suggestion? Same signal, my old T61p can well connect to the same weak or normal signal without any disconnection. However, T440p has this problems time to time.

T440p has been upgraded to Windows10. This issue exists all time.

T61p has been upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 pro.

There are many possibilities.  If you have a dual-band router, they could be trying to connect at different frequencies (T61p is single frequency).  I have seen cases where machines with 15" cases get better reception than 14" ones.  I don't know why, and the 2 wires are supposed to be primary and AUX, but I have seen it happen.  You might try a different channel on the router.

Thank you for your response. In fact, all my laptops are dual bands. T61p is much better than T440p in which I customized this wireless adapter. Unfortunately, feel very disappointed.
