The cheaper you go the crappier they are.

Netgear wireless adapter. They're cheap and they work pretty well.

Just go and buy a Netgear wifi extender. Its about 40 bucks(Canadian, so about 30 bucks American give or take a few), hooks into your electrical outlet and acts as a wireless access point for anything in your room giving it a full 4 bar connection. A good one will also have a ethernet port on the side so you can plug your computer directly into it.

Stay away from USB versions of them. From personal experience, I had one overheat to the point where it stopped detecting the internet completely. The version I mentioned prior doesn't even power by your computer and keeps your internet nice and stable. If you lack outlet space, just grab a decent surge protector for again 40 dollars.

I should note that at least from my point of view I have only had a couple issues with the Netgear wifi extender I have, but thats more or less a couple of dropped signals which fix themselves fairly quickly.
