You can boost your signal with a PCMCIA wireless card, that has an antenna connector

thanks, does it matter what company the card is. For example, if it is a linksys card will it only work with a linksys router? I need something that is universal and will work with pretty much any router. Thanks

no...any wireless card will work with any wireless router provided they are using the same wireless protocol (802.11 b/a/g/etc.).
In other words (the above sounded kind of convoluted)
If your wireless router is 802.11g then any 802.11g card will work with it as well as most 802.11b's although you don't really want to mix protocols if you don't have to.

thanks... I will get that wireless card and check it out... should I get an antenna with it?

which one of these would be most sufficient for me? It has to be able to connect to all routers. Thanks

Like Philosopher said, you don't have to worry about compatibi lity with your router, as long as it supports the same protocols.
About your card, I would go for a Linksys (a Cisco's division ith more affordable products), or D-Link.
