    I'm going to be moving soon to an area with FIOS.. My buddy currently has it and I'm moving into the same apartment complex... So he's giving me permission to use his connection and we're gonna split the cost...

    I've tried standing in the doorway of my future apartment, but I get a weak signal with my Dell laptop with built-in wireless.. Not sure on my iMac since I haven't set it up inside yet...

    What do I need to purchase to get a better signal?

    You want either an Access Point or a Range Expander. Linksys sells an "Range Extender" for something like $70. I have one in my four floor home and it works perfectly once you figure out how to set it up (i hate instructions!)
