    How can I boast Wi-Fi connection in my building.


    Not very hi-tech in this field so please bear with me.

    My building has wifi. I am able to connect and surf the net.
    There are 4 connections available to use.
    Periodically, I get disconnected/reconnected or my signal is very low.
    Am told it's due to the number of users connecting at one time or accessing a sight that may reduce my signal.

    I do have access to change the 4 Network connection properties.
    - Set to connect automatically when in range.
    - Set to mixed band with options 2.4or 5.2 Ghz open.
    My network card is Centrino ŽUltimate-N 6300 AGN

    Is there any hardware or software I can purchase that will boost my signal?
    Specify the product name or show link please.
    Can I tweak software components on my laptop that might help?

    I use win8 platform.

    There are quite a few range entenders available (example). But, I am not sure if any would work with your wifi.
