So I know it is possible to boost a Wi-Fi signal that is being broadcast, but is it possible to boost Wi-Fi reception from your computer?

as @pjob797 said you can set up a repeater or you can get a high gain wireless dongle like this, which boosts the range that your pc can 'see' but lowers the maximum theoretical connection speed between the computer and the router

Yes, that is something more like what I am looking for. I know that you can extend the signal like @pjob797 said but that just seems like a pain.
