I wanna connect to internet over the wireless connection of our university. But I m out of the range of the wireless network transmitter. How can I connect to this network from outside of that area using repeaters. What kind of equipments should I use? (Preferably cheap and solar powered equipments)

note: I' m about 500 meters away from the transmitter

I am not aware of any cheap and solar powered equipment.  Some APs have a repeater mode built in, but these are not cheap.  I would suggest buying a cheap antenna instead.  Try http://www.fab-corp.com/
