kenyonstewart is on a distinguished road
The main question is whether you have built-in WiFi or a separate card. Most separate cards will have external antenna connections on them. There are plenty of places online that sell different types of antennas, they are the same as the ones for 900Mhz phone signals. If the signal is in direct sight and you get a directional antenna pointed right at it with enough amplification, you should be able to get a signal. There are also repeaters that you could hook it up to instead of your computer and you could provide a signal for youself and everyone around you.
