I have a wireless network (linksys wireless b+g router)

There is a computer that I want to connect to my network is this out of range. Its a desktop pc that has both a wireless card and a regular network card.

Is there some sort of device that I can put in the middle to boost the signal so that it reaches. I need something that is not wired directly the the original router. Its ok if its connect via a wire to the desktop pc ,but I dont want it connected to the actual router.

LInksys has a number of expansion products, but depending on the distance you'd probably be served well by either using hi-gain optional antenna's or bouncing the signal wirelessly using directional antenna's. You might even find a bridge. Hawking Tech is a great resource as well.
