How can a Wifi antenna booster increase the wireless connection performance?

Hi, I have situation here where my laptop and the wifi router are separated with walls and cause the connection to fail. I am thinking of replacing the wireless router's antenna with an antenna booster, probably 10dBi. I believe this antenna will be able to penetrate the signal through the walls to my laptop.... show more Hi, I have situation here where my laptop and the wifi router are separated with walls and cause the connection to fail.

But I doubt that, will this antenna be able to receiver the returning signal from my laptop, if I don't do any upgrade to my laptop?
