On your phone, try moving it around. I don't think you can do much about your phone's reception. I assume it is OK in some places.

On your computer, go to Network and Sharing Center (Control Panel) and then Change Adapter settings. Select your Wi-Fi card, Properties and make sure "Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O Driver" is enabled. If it becomes disabled, you get the "protocol missing" error above.
