WiFi link weak signa.

  montrachet 12:19 16 Feb 2010

Can anyone give me some advice please.
I have a relatively recent Toshiba laptop. Model Satellite L300-1AQ with Vista Home Premium
I have a holiday home and would like to use the computer there. I have a BT account with access to BT Openzone. There is a neighbour 15mtrs away who is registered for the Openzone scheme.
I am able to link into his system with WiFi but the signal is not strong enough. Two bars max.
Looking at the internet, I can see, as usual, that there appear to be a million solutions. Boosters etc etc. Can somebody point me in the right direction please. I notice that BT sell a Hawking Hi-Gain Wireless 300n USB network dish adaptor and a Hawking Wireless G dish adaptor.
The High gain 300n gives speeds up to 300Mbps and the G model 54Mbps.
Will this work or are there any better solutions.
Thanks in advance.

You know what they say 'if all else fails read the manual'
