If you want one that plugs into your router use this one. http://www.radiolabs.com/products/wireless/wireless-range-extender.php

I have this one and it is awesome. Easily 2.5x longer range and stronger signal. We use it to send Wi-Fi about 1/4 mile down a trail at my camp.

This one goes on the device receiving the signal instead of sending http://www.radiolabs.com/products/wireless/802.11n-amplifier.php

I have no experience with this product, but I like the radio labs guys. Solid people there.

I'd like to be able to push my signal out to some other buildings on the property -- the first device looks like it'd work like a champ. I may have to try it even though it's only 'g' -- I don't see an 802.11n equivalent on their site. –  Niniki Jul 7 '09 at 21:06
    
this is true, I would definalty put a call into the Radio labs guys and see what they say. They have always given me a money-back deal and I have taken them up on it when I got something that did not work the way I thought it would. There number is (877) 575-3700. –  Matt Jul 7 '09 at 22:27
    
This might prove useful, its an 'n' mimo inline antenna amp for just a little more than the above product -> radiolabs.com/products/wireless/802.11n-amplifier.php –  drgncabe Jul 8 '09 at 13:51
    
I agree drgncabe, that does look like it might do what Niniki wants. On either the recieving, sending, or heck both ends if he feels like it. Nice find. –  Matt Jul 8 '09 at 16:04

I use the one from linksys here. You can also get it at bestbuy. What router are you using though?
