    Hi. I am new to networking. I want to extend my router's range (D-Link 514)
    to wirelessly connect from my desktop's cable internet connection to my
    laptop in a small building behind my house. The signal is very weak out
    there. I have looked all over for info about an antenna for it but can only
    seem to find info on later D-Link routers. Does anyone know of a signal
    booster antenna or other hardware that will work with this router?

    Thanks!

  2. You could used a gain antenna. Found something like this on Compusa
    "Hi Gain 6dB Omni-Directional Wireless Antenna, 802.11b, g"
    Will improve your range. Just move it closer to outside building and there
    ya go.
