Windows 7: Improving Router Antenna

Improving Router Antenna

I currently have a DLink DSL-G604T (connected to Telecom NZ) for about nearly 3 years - I want to upgrade the antenna, as the strength really sucks. Is there anything I can do to improve the antenna? I don't mind if I have to buy something.

I want to improve it to about 15 meters from the router. Maybe I need to buy a brand new router?
