The "G" networks are backwards compatible and will not boost your connection speed to the Internet. Maybe on a local network. The speed is 54mpbs on g and 12 on b. Not many people out there have Internet connections faster than 12mbps. So, your current Airport card should suffice.
If you get some Airport extreme thing your are not guaranteed to pick up your neighbors signal. I would suggest getting an external antenna to boost the signal.

I actualy think the signal is comming from a school that is right down the street from my house.
After work im thinking about running down too the school with my Tibook and seeing if I get anything.It would be great if I could get it from my room
