Okay, my router is downstairs (a two-story house) and my room is upstairs; we have comcast internet. Will buying an adapter to put in my desktop make the signal from the router downstairs stronger for my PC? Would I have to disable the router downstairs or anything? I just want a stronger connection for ME and not anyone else lol

If you're gaming direct Ethernet is the best solution for lowest latency and spike.
2nd best is powerline,
last is wireless.

I'm talking about a wireless adapter. In a more simple version: If I buy a good wireless adapter for MY personal use, will it pick up the Comcast internet signal from downstairs better than without a wireless adapter?

Yes, if u buy a stronger wireless adapter it will have better signal.
But what would help more is buy an antenna for ur pc.
