How can I get the wireless signal from the router at my moms to reach my house (less than 500 ft away)?

My mom and I got WildBlue internet to share but I cant get the signal to reach my house. She has the router as close to me and it can be. It is the Linksys - Ultra RangePlus Wireless-N Broadband Router with 4-Port Switch ( http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8639967&st=wireless+router&type=product&id=1194054018722 ). Is there something else I need to get? Please help me if you know what I can do.
