WiFi devices decide which access point (and which band) to connect to. Google/Nest WiFi provides some extra information (in the form of 802.11k and 802.11v) that can help clients make better decisions (including when to hand off from one AP/band to another). However, not all WiFi clients support those specifications, and they are on their own to make those decisions. Some do a better job than others. It sounds like your PC is in that category. You may have some luck getting it to connect to a closer AP by briefly disabling (for 30 seconds or so) the WiFi interface and then enabling it again. That may trigger a re-scan and reconnect that will let it see and connect to the stronger access point.
