Signal strength for wireless?

I have a laptop with a Microsoft Wireless Notebook Adapter MN-520. When I search for available hookups, it finds one that is unencrypted but is too weak to get a connection.

Question: If I set up a desktop computer in the same location, is there a wireless adapter card that has an antenna strong enough to use that signal?

Or is there a way to construct such an antenna?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

If you are not paying for the connection you don't need to be trying to "steal" it. We cannot help in that situation. Now I could be entirely wrong here, so please explain this situation. We reserve the right to make our own judgement and refuse help if need be.
