Windows 7: Anyone who knows anything about internet... please

Anyone who knows anything about internet... please

Recently I got a building built at the end of my garden about 30 metres away. I want to be able to access internet down there and only get a really weak connection if I hold my laptop up high above my head. Theres quite a steep drop form the top to the bottom of my garden. I want to be able to connect from different computers/ laptops there so anyhting which could apply to all. Any suggestions you know that work.
Note: I have a old belkin router which could always be upgraded!

You could use a wifi repeater, i don't know if it would work with that weak signal though...
There are cheap and more expensive ones too, do a little research about the range of the cheaper ones so you will see wether they fit your need or not.

how old is your router? newer routers have wireless N which is a little stronger signals. there are external antenna extenders you can buy too. - Wireless Accessories, Wireless Network Accessories, Antenna Kits

but for their prices a newer router might be a better option.
this one is a pretty good one for the price, it also has a built in repeater for extended range.
