Though people have said this in other posts:
Normally, antennae are tuned to the frequency of the signal they produce, fitting a different sized one is likely to drop the signal strength. If you have a spare or cheap wireless router you can turn it into a repeater. The router might support this out the box, if it doesn't you can upgrade the firmware. This article[^] gives an overview of doing this (with one of the WRT variants in the article, you could also consider Tomato[^])
The other thing I have heard (but don't know if it is true) is that the firmware on the router restricts the output power. There may be an option to boost the power, or possibly your could replace the firmware with the above. If you do decide to flash a router, make sure you check the compatibility list for the firmware you are using. Also flashing like this will invalidate the warranty, in case your friend worries about such things.
