Marcelf brought up a good point...interference.

A good app to check for all WiFi signals is WiFi Analyzer. It shows all the signals around you and their signal strengths. At home, I have 3 neighbors using the same channel (not me, I'm on an empty one) and I'm sure they are having interference issues. This app will let you find an unused channel.

Another similar app you might like is WiFi Analytics.
