Default Weak signal (WiFi)

Recently bought a Nexus 5 thats completely stock but the WiFi signal is poor. I'm getting 3 bars when next to the router and it comes drops to one only a few feet away. Is this a hardware problem or is it an issue with software that can be fixed with root and custom roms?

Thanks.

Yup. They seem to be the same, if not a little worse.
