Boosting wifi signal

I would like to extend the range of my current wifi and thus be able to share files with my neighbor.

I'm thinking of buying a tp-link W8960N adsl2+ router to replace my linksys WRT54GL setup and thus boost the range due to the fact that the tp-link supports 802.11n

To give you a better idea of my circumstances - I have uploaded a google earth shot of my home and the neighbors home.

Point A is where I have my adsl line installed and where I will have to add the tp-link router - or better solution.
Distance from point A to center of neighbors house C is +- 65m (70 yards)

Point B is where I'm now adding a second office to my home (i'm a fulltime webmaster)
Distance from point B to center of neighbors house C is +- 40m (43 yards)

My question is - what do I buy for point A (maybe the tp-link as mentioned) point B and Point C.

I really prefer not to go the cat 5 route - getting my tubby *** in the roof is a death sentence.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

    Dear Customer,

    Thank you very much for your email requesting information about our product.

    First, I suggest that you could purchase TL-W8960N at point A.

    At point B, you could choose TL-WA701ND working as Access Point mode. To
    ensure the quality of communication, please connects TL-W8960N to TL-WA701ND
    by a cable.

    At point C, you could choose TL-WA701ND working as Bridge mode.

    If the quality of communication is not very good, you could buy TL-ANT2409B
    to connect to the TL-WA701ND at point B.

    If you need any further help, please feel free to let me know.
