I live in an apartment and I get free wi-fi, which the landlord provides for the whole building. But my signal is painfully weak from my apartment. Is there an inexpensive way to amplify the signal I receive from the main router?

is there any other wifi with a good signal strength coded in WEP? you could hack it, its way easier and free with the appropiate advice
hacking WPA-PSK networks would be whole lot of trouble though

No, there's only one network with decent signal and it's WPA2-PSK.

hmm, then that won't get your problem solved...

try this: http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx#fbid=RZ5RlwX2zKB
id pay special atention to 4 and specially 5, given that the other options revolve around the router location, and it looks like you can't change that

in case you receive many signals, aside from the one you want, you may also try changing your router's channel (if you can enter it with the default username-password kim jong-kim jong at address 192.168.1.1) but you should first get a program which can detect the different wifi's channels (such a ekahau heatmaper's free version)

Hmmm...I think I'll most likely end up going with number 5. My landlord mentioned something similar to it the last time I was having signal trouble.
