Neither the router nor the computer should be near any electronic/electric/large metal objects.

well i wouldnt put it that way, you can have your router right next your computer and nothing happens other than strong signal, the idea is (OP confirmed the prob. himself) that the router cannot be very close to any electrical transmitter (tv, radio, cordless phones, etc) output.
easy fix for that, take router and put it opposite to room or change the channel in the router's settings

Obviously if the router is right next to the PC your going to get a good signal, but if the router is there, it makes absolutely no sense to be using wireless with it, hardwiring would be the intelligent choice.

Well he said there is a door, so he probably doesn't want a wire he might end up tripping over or having stuck in the door. I'd say update your drivers and try another channel too. You might be able to adjust the strength of the signal from the router also.
