Problem with wireless networks: difficulty finding available networks and connecting

I have an Asus A43E which have difficulty finding wireless networks (mainly WiFi hotspots) even though I know there are several networks available. My friends’ laptops detect these networks but mine can only detect one or not at all. When trying to connect, more often than not it will fail. Even when connected, it’s very slow.

I don’t have the same problem with wired networks. I have checked my power options to set wireless capability to ‘maximum performance’ even in battery mode, but it doesn’t seem to affect the situation. How can I fix this?
I use Windows 7 x64 Home Premium, but the problem with detecting wireless networks persist even when booting elementary, puppy, porteus, and mint. Any chance this is a hardware problem?
