look on ebay for ubiquiti

These have a 300milliwatt rating (far surpassing EU law at 100mW but only any good if your wireless router/access point is also powerful really but still helps) and more importantly working with linux live cd aircrack allowing you to access and use WEP networks.
That card which is £60+ on ebay with a £10 9dB wifi antenna, you might need a pig tail cable converter as the ubuquiti card uses MC antenna ports and you will have a powerful setup.

Generally speaking you need an antenna on a wireless network card for it to work long range

I'm surprised your laptop one is so poor as inbuilt laptop ones tend to have a nice large aerial all around the tft lcd screen which is half decent.

would be far superior, but a speciality card has boosted power and more options.
