    Maybe that PC uses an old NIC which doesn't support the protocolls and mode of AP it can't connect to. The AP it connects to slowly could be using a mode that is supported by that NIC.

    For example old NIC's might only support 802.11 b mode, which is old and uses a low connection speed (11mb), while today's NIC's and AP's support 802.11 g (52mb) or 802.11 n (up to 300mb). On modern AP's often mode b is disabled by default as it can cause problems with security and also saturation so the AP gets unaccessible if someone tries to connect to it using that mode.

    A further cause could be that your NIC doesn't support WPA or WPA2 security, and the AP you can't connect to could be using that mode. Older NIC's only support WEP and those should definitely not be used and the NIC replaced.

    A further issue could be that you have a bad aerial which reduces the reception.

    Can you please Reinstall Wireless Network Card Driver software on that Problem PC...?

    Please check the Firewall ( Windows or antivirus ) having problem to connect that AP.

    And For Testing Purpose can you give the static IP / Subnet / Gateway & DNS ..?

    That PC has the Wired Network card also..?
