    Since this Wireless Router doesnt use antenna's purchasing a range extending antenna booster is not an option. However there are other things that may help you achieve your desired goal. If you purchase an acess point you can link your current Access Point which is your router to the new access point a considerable length away and thus extend your range in the direction you place the access point your purchase. However there are some important things you will need to check first. Does  the 2wire 2701hg-b firmware include s a "bridge" mode. This mode allows access points to talk to other access points to essentially construct a wireless link. Not all 2wire routers/access points have this functionality. I don't have one of these to check for you. If yours doesn't, you might check to see if installing the latest version of the firmware might provide that. If it doesn't you can essentially form a link with the new Access Point and increase your range in whatever direction you place the new access point at whatever distance the link provides a constant good and stable connection. Hope this helps.
