Hey everyone, so I'm living in an apartment on my fathers property and using the wifi from his router out there. But the internet is so poor I usually lose the signal, since it has to go through walls and a bunch of trees. My question is can I use the phone jacks in the wall to set up a second router or something to increase it. Or what is the best way to increase the power and strength. What do I need and how do I do it. My fathers router is under verizon vios. I plan on getting and xbox 360 with live capability and need good internet for that. Thanks :)
