How to strengthen wireless internet signal?

Hello people

I get internet from my neighbor next door, and where exactly about 18 ft. apart. I know that having a repeater or an external antenna can solve the problem but i cant afford those things right now. I know that on pc you can go to task manager and conentrate your bandwidth percentage to internet explorer, but is there anything like that i can do to my mac? also any other free way would be good too.

P.S. my neighbor said it was okay to use his internet.

Orientation of your Mac would probably help. Also getting rid or turning off any interfering appliances like cordless phones.

You could try using a different wireless channel, sometimes that helps.
