The best thing to install is a wireless access point, but you need to run cable
back to the router.
The wireless repeaters I have tried have not worked very well - you get half the
speed if you can get it configured correctly..
I installed a wireless booster for a customer recently and it does help:
Though you run into signal/noise ratio problems with boosters.
You can also get a bigger antenna for your FIOS router..
Finally, you can get an N router and an N card for your laptop.
But an access point is always best..

FIOS provides a wireless transmitter to connect to the internet,
but this is too weak to cover the whole house. I've been told
that one option to extend the wireless' reach is to get a second
(and more powerful) wireless transmittter. This would be hooked
up to one of the open ports on FIOS-supplied one.
Is that true? If so, do you have a hardware recommendation?
