Need to boost range of my Wireless-N router. How?

I have a WRVS4400N for my home office and it works great for inside the house. I also have a gazebo about 120 ft away from the router that I like to sit out on in nice weather to work. I get very low reception out there (1/2 bar) and would like to boost that. Will a WAP4400N accomplish that without more wires/cables?  If not, how can I do this wirelessly?  I set up my own network easily, but I ant to make sure what I need can be done before I spend a lot of time and money on it. All help will be appreciated.


Thanks,

Karen

You have the following options: 
1.  Relocate your AP to cover your house and your gazebo;
2.  Get another AP and configure it as a bridge or connect it directly to your Linksys wireless router;
