I am trying to reach my internet signal to seperate building on my property and I want to know if a stronger modem would help at all. There is a weak signal over there, just enough to get on Facebook to say. In some places though it doesn't reach it at all. Please also leave the price for the new modem.

The modem doesn't affect the wireless signal unless you have a modem and wireless router all in one. JohnWill has some recommendations for extending wireless networking coverage, but it would help if you could provide the make and model for all the networking hardware in this setup.

How far apart are the buildings? & what type of buildings? like from your house to your garage or something? Where exactly is your router located now? Maybe draw a picture of your floor plan.

Anyways I would suggest you move your router to the window and point it at the other building this may help a bit.
As for another router, only one i could think of that may help would be a WRT54GL with custom firmware this way you can increase the signal strength of the router.
