I have a wireless range extender which connects the internet from my neighbors home (200yds away. It works well 60 percent of the time but every so often the extender can't pick up the neighbors wireless signal. There is no way to more the extender closer. What can I do to focus the neighbors signal my way without being to invasive to them?

I have considered upgrading my neighbors router with high gain antenna. Would this help? Also someone suggested I have another antenna in my home but my laptop has wireless built in...would I have to disable the built in wireless card and the use a usb network adapter with a high gain antenna?
