there is this way to make a really good antena that can catch signals up to a mile, you do it with a Pringles (chips) cyllinder and wire some stuff around, you can look on the internet and there are dirrections.

also depends on what your router supports. 802.11g is 54mb/s, but at a shorter range... 802.11b is 11mb/s, but supports a much larger range.

If you are trying to expand your signal without spending money you can try simple things like relocating the router or keeping metal objects and other electronics (like microwaves) away.

I don't believe in "Extender" devices anymore. I have been through quite a few and it is still easier and usually cheaper to just buy another access point and use it to extend your network.
