Do I need a booster or repeater or something else

Hello,
I have a four story townhome with FIOS. My wireless router is in the basement. Reception is fine on first and second floor, third floor is always poor. I do have an ethernet connection on the fourth floor. Would a booster help? Could I buy another wireless router and plug it into the ehternet port in the fourth floor? Then use that wireless to connect from the third floor?

  1. Add a wireless repeater to the network.
  2. put the router on the 1st floor. repeaters only amplify what ever signal they pick up. so if your only getting 3 mbps it will only amplify that 3mps and not the full strength of the router. my last amplifier boosted the signal not the speed.
