how can i boost range of WAG54G to use in the building 50 meters away?

(OP)
I have a linksys WAG54G router  using it wireless with a USB adapter on my desktop.  I bought the Linksys notebook adapter for use on my laptop in another building on my property (line of sight) that is only 50 meters away but the signal strength is only 37%.  What can I do to boost it.  The two buildings are served by different electrical systems so I dont think a powerline booster will work.  Any suggestions?
