Hello,

My name is ***** ***** and I look forward to assisting you today.

In your case, you have two options; either use a PowerLine adapter or a wireless extender.

Using a wireless extender is always the last resort for many resort because when you use an extender, the speed is cut in half, reliability is decreased, along with a few other problems. Due to this reason, I suggest that you use a powerline adapter.

You can find a similar piece of equipment at the following link: https://www.walmart.com/ip/TP-LINK-TL-WPA4220KIT-N300-AV500-WiFi-Powerline-Extender-Starter-Kit/34743027

You will have two adapters:
- The first one is plugged into the wall power and the router
- The second adapter is plugged into any other room in your house (I suggest putting it on the opposite end of the house)

The second adapter will then connect to the 1st adapter via the power lines in the house and create a new wireless signal that you can connect to.
