Could be you are using less resources in Linux than Windows. So this
allows for a better range in your reception of access points. I am just
guessing, but that is what I think is happening. Also, if you have the
time I would try it with ndiswrapper and see how that works. If it works
better then your problem is solved or you really have a work around. The
actually problem really isn't solved. :o)
