Long Range Solution

I recently had to relocate my computer to a room on the far end of my house away from our router (an older Linksys 2.4 GHz model - BEFW11S4 v2). I'm using a D-Link plug in wireless receiver (also several years old) to pull in the signal from the router. After the move, I now get a minimal signal, if any. Web pages are super slow to load and the system is basically unusable. I know the distance from the router is the basic problem but I'm wondering if there are any solutions. Are there new routers or receivers out there that might help? I had once used a signal booster for this problem without much success. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You might look at Homeplug sort of solution -- uses the home power wiring to carry network. You simply plug one in to the wall at the computer end and connect with ethernet cord.

Other end plug in twin and connect to router by ethernet cord.

There's a certain amount of setting up and speeds aren't quite as advertised but it's worth investigating.
