sharing Internet Wirelessly and boosting wireless signal?

sharing Internet Wirelessly and boosting wireless signal?

I have a question about sharing Internet Wirelessly.
My neighbor has a wireless network that I’m able to tap into with Motorola WN825G wireless card in my laptop. Unfortunately I have to be outside to get enough signals. I ran Ethernet wire through the wall to my wired router to get it to my PC. But again my laptop has to stay outside(it gets really cold)

I just purchased Netgear WGR614 G wireless router (and am getting another one) and was wondering if I have the router outside would it pick up neighbor’s network and then I could connect to my router with my laptop and get Internet inside my house.

If that won’t work than what should I invest in to boost signal inside my house? Antenna? , Repeater? , Access Point?  
Or what kind of setup would you suggest.

I have two wired routers (they are only T10base, pretty slow but it’s sufficient) and will have two wireless routers Netgear plus wireless card in my laptop.
If someone can help me I’d appreciate it.
Thank you.
