What do you think that the issue is, poor signal in her room or an issue with the laptop wifi? Is there a lot of local interference or a poor signal, you can check that out with inSSIDer (freeware: http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/).

Perhaps just adding a USB wireless adapter with a big antenna will work if she has a sufficient signal in her room. The only "booster" that would work would not be something that she could configure, as it would require the person controlling the wireless to do.

Nice that you are helping her with this! The problem is that with no signal there is nothing that you can do in her room with the current signal. Is she in a location that Clear is available for wifi or some other Internet connection is possible? How far is she from a good signal?
