    I live in a storage unit that is disconnected from my roommate's house, on my laptop and cell phone I can consistently get a bar or two of wifi, would installing a wireless modem help me at all in this situation? Like would it be able to pick up the signal from the router and bring it into here somehow? I have the opportunity to have our provider come out and install a cable, but if its not needed and this is a solution as well I would like to know.

    You can't boost the wi-fi at your end, it has to be done at the other end. I would get the cable (if it's not going to cost a lot).
