why do you need to boost the signal - a particular application? Siting
the AP in the correct place will ensur best signal propagation. mine is 2 floors above where i am
currently sitting and i still get a good signal. have
you looked at using the very simply to make 'windsurfer' antennae? worth
a quick go - only 10 minutes work. 

eg http://www.freeantennas.com/projects/template/index.html
or check the EZ-12 and EZ-10 links for the Windsurfer cut'n'paste templates
(simply glue or attach aluminium foil/sheet to the reverse side)

you can even _pay_ for this stuff.... http://www.tritium.co.uk/
