I have a wireless card built in to my laptop. I live right next door to my office which has a wireless access point. Right next door means, i am approx. 75- 100 feet away. When I connect I can only get a "very low" signal strength. Is there a way to boost this with an antenna or something external?

Depends on the wireless access point. For example, I have a Linksys WRT54G. I put the router with new 9dB antennas next to the wall so I can access the WAP from next door. I get an excellent signal both next door, and in the room with the router.
