I'm looking for a way to boost my ability to pull in wireless internet. My parking spot is just far enough away from my house that the internet reception is pretty spotty. It's really cramping my style. What's a man cave without reliable internet, right? And also, when traveling, I want to be able to grab signals to the best of my ability from publicly available wireless internet at libraries, cafes, etc.
So I've found some things online, but I'm not quite sure sometimes from the description if they are intended to be used on the broadcast end (router) or the receiving end. Plus, I wonder just how much better some of these are than the wireless receiver that's already built into my laptop.
Anyone have expertise in this area? I'm looking to spend as little as possible of course, hopefully under $50. Here is an example of what I've been looking at so far: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Powerlink-Wirel ... 519c2bacb1
