    Does anyone here know of a decent wireless adapter (for < $60 hopefully) that would go from my garage to my wireless router inside? I have a D-Link router, probably 4 years old, never had a single problem with it. I've got a $30 Trend Net adapter right now but it doesn't get nearly as strong of a signal as my laptop does when I'm out here.

    Just bury some wire and put an AP in the garage, it will be faster and more reliable.

    Check ebay for a directional antenna, or go buy a cantenna.

    Buddy has both a cantenna and a yagi. Both work awesome but are directional.

    Except burying wire is just going to attract lightning and destroy equipment on both ends of the line. Unless, of course, appropriate surge suppression is used - which won't be purchased under the OP's budget constraint.
