Easiest safest way to extend signal range

I have a D-Link Xtreme N router located in an office, connected to cable ISP. It delivers a great signal to my family room, which is one wall away from the office. I cannot get a good signal in my bedroom which is ~35' and 2 walls away from the office.

What options do I have for getting a good signal to the bedroom?

I don't want to move the router because it has a printer wire-connected to it.

Would a range extender work?

How about placing another D-Link Xtreme N router in the bedroom, connected to a cable outlet? Would that work or create conflicts?

  3. you could use this router and with the installation of the DD-WRT firmware you could use it as a Bridge Repeater
