Online Gaming via WiFi

Anyways, I was wondering whether I should get a wireless repeater or a wireless adapter. I've somewhat singled it down to two different products (one a repeater and one an adapter) and just wanted to know if they were any good or if someone could suggest one for me.

What's your signal strength like?
Speedtest and ping?
Who is your ISP?

And it's blocked by 2 slabs of concrete walls from the living room to my room.

get a good router that doesn't break the bank (like netgear dual band, $45) and a wireless card that is hardware based, not software. Most are not cheap.
second, setup the router to within a channel that is not used. wireless g and n both share frequencies that are very common. the best way to get around this is for wireless G, to check all 11 channels and find the one that doesn't cut out very often and for N set it to 40mhz on a odd channel.
Even if you had good equipment, leaving everything at default settings will be interfering with other wifi around you. my apartment has 15 other routers within the same building.
