Just remember detecting the network is not illegal, however if you send/receive any information its Wifi theft and you can go to jail for it.

you may want to check the channels used and set your router to a different channel to avoid interference

channels 1 and 6 and 11 do not overlap - and are the most common

netstumbler will show you the channel
also xirrus is a good tool

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Download and install

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

Direct link to the program is here http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifi_download_redirect.php
Then run and install the program - on a wireless enabled PC/Laptop
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

Run the program

For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better.

If you are using the Mac OS then use http://www.istumbler.net/
