Default Looking for a powerful wifi adapter

Hi,

I'm using wifi from somewhere in my neighbourhood and currently get 45% signal using a cheap usb adapter. I'm looking to splash out on a powerful little dish, does anyone have any sites they could recommend me and what model?

Since it seems that you're admitting to stealing someone else's WiFi (unless I interpreted your post incorrectly), I doubt you'll be getting much help here. We're not allowed to help you break the law.

Nah, here in the UK our cities and towns have free wifi provided by some of the councils.

I'm in the UK, and it's the first I've heard of it. But, giving you the benefit of the doubt...
