Help me range extend my wireless!

Hi everyone,

I would like to do some work at home using an outbuilding on my property as a small office.

(Save gas working at home!)

I need to have internet access out there for that all to work.

I have wireless networking on my laptop computer and a typical home wireless router.

The outbuilding is about 100-150 feet away. Anyone have some tips to make a cheap/simple setup to make the wireless network go for me?

For example, I am thinking of a cantenne, matched rummage sale satellite dished repurposed, something like that.

I really don't want to dig a trench that long to drop in a Cat-5 cable!

Any ideas?
