I Need Help: Boosting signal strength of Wireless Router

I have a D-Link DI-614+ wireless router that I have located centrally in my house. However, at times, I get a very weak signal. I've applied all the most recent firmware updates to the router as well as the PCMCIA D-Link card but would still like to boost the signal.

Would an addon atnenna such as the following be sufficient?

I don't want to spend too much and I get a signal through most of the house but just need a bit of a boost. Would this 6dBi antenna help?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
