What do you mean by "any open wireless signals"?

- What "Mac" do you have?
- How far is your computer from your wireless router?
- And why do you feel that you need a stronger signal (what is the issue)?

What you are doing is not legal, so you're not going to get any help from us.

Get your own internet provider and stop stealing other people's bandwidth. Or hang out more at places that offer free public Wi-Fi.
