Default Two routers, one household.

Hey guys, I'm new here and my name is Phil.
I was wondering if you could possibly help me find a solution.

So, here's the problem:
I live in a two story house, and my bedroom is on the second floor. But, the router for the internet is located on the first floor and on the opposite side of the house. Therefore giving me a really poor internet connection. I was wondering if there was some way that I could possibly connect a second router (wirelessly, of course) to my room to be able to have a stronger connection. Any help into this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Also, I already searched the forum for a solution, but came up empty handed. (I might have missed something, so if another topic has been posted, I would greatly desire the link to it.)
Thank you so much for your time, and I'm hoping for a speedy reply!

You can use a second wireless router as a "bridge". This will show you how: How To Turn An Old Router Into A Wireless Bridge

That's a nice link. Of course if you could run an ethernet cable to the router it would be much easier, but if you can't run a cable there, then this solution will work nicely.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
