Looking to Extend Wireless Range. Best Solution?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I already have a wireless modem which my telephone company provided me (Actiontec R1000H) which I presently have my gaming computer hardwired to. For the most part this modem is good however the range sucks. In my two bedrooms upstairs I get almost 0 connection and the speeds are a lot to be desired. Recently some issues came up and I now have to move my gaming PC upstairs to another room. The modem is downstairs in the rec room and cannot be moved.

Wondering some suggests on a range extender and suggestions for a router that would boot the wireless performance with little leg.
