Long Range WiFi card

I am looking for a good wifi card for long range use. I set up a computer in my shop behind my house. Its around 210 feet maybe a tad further from the computer in my shop to the router in my house. I might also be in the market for a stronger router if needed. I can use either a PCI or a PCI-E wifi card in the system in my shop. Something that will be able to maintain a strong signal. Any sugestions would be great thanks
