Use a wireless router, and setup a bridge. Use a wok on each side (be sure to aim correctly) and up the TX power. I like the linksys wrt54g because there are lots of 3rd party firmwares you can use. I use ddwrt, which is very customizable (with all its settings) but be prepared to confront the nitty gritty raw jargon of network geniuses (not as easy as the original firmware). This, however, can get complicated.

you could place your router by a window, or if you don't care about looks, form a parabolic dish around the antenna (make sure its centered) assuming you have a "rubber ducky", i would cut off the plastic to reveal the actual metal of the antenna, and then double its height with the same metal wire, but with the addiction of a coil about half way. search "wifi"

A directional antenna can do that. Maybe even just a cantenna will do, plus it's just about free. There are commercially available directional antennas as well.
