WiFi problem

I seem to have a problem with WiFi receprion.
I have BT Infinity and i get full reception on the KF HD at front of the house near the router but struggle to get ONE bar at the back.
I get full bars with my Toshiba laptop.
Have I got a hardware fault or has anyone had a similar problem?
Don't want to return for a replacement if it wont make any difference.
Can anyone out there help?

The " bars"  are only a vague indecation of the signal strength that varry between devices, that said the toshiba most probebly has a much better wifi reciever in it, it costing xxx times more than the kindle thats onky to be exspected !!!

Go into wifi, settings, then click on your conection and it will amongst other thibgs tell you the wifi tranfere speed, anything above one Mb per second is fine for general internet, 5 or 6 required for hd streaming, generally one one bar mine is giving 20 odd Mb per seconds, which is complete over kill. Its only when uts just the dot in the middle showing that things slow down

Thats a 10' my 7" is a bit more marginal on signal, but find out what youve actually got
