I know you were looking for an antenna, but have you considered any of these extenders.

Linksys - http://www.linksys.com/products/product ... 8&prid=629

D-Link - http://www.dlink.com/products/?sec=1&pid=267

Netgear - http://www.netgear.com/products/details/WGXB102.php

If you use all netgear equipment, the Netgear extender is snazzy. I cant vouch for the quality of any of these though.

Hope this helps

You probably want to use either a wireless extender like Dangles mentioned, or upgrade the antenna on your wireless access point (router.) What type of wireless router do you have?

If you do go with a range extender, to be safe, I would suggest matching up your brand names. For example, buy a Linksys extender if you're using a Linksys wireless router.

Linksys sells "high gain" antenna upgrades for their wireless routers:

I have seen a very noticeable increase in wireless strength using these, and I would definitely recommend them.
