My house is rather large and my main modem/router are in the 2nd floor. What's the best way to extend my wifi to the bottom floor? I tried a range extender, but it didn't really work. The signal kept disconnecting from the devices I was trying to use it with. Can I somehow set up another router downstairs to the phone jack without having to pay for another account?

Running a ethernet cable is not always possible. I had a similar situation. My solution was to connect my old Netgear wireless to the ATT Wi- Fi. Problem solved...

Another good option is a wi-fi range extender, like this one, I use one at home and it works great.

I'm hearing from Amped Wireless that AT & T has now installed software to block Range Extenders from working.
AT & T thinks people are shaing wi-fi internet with their neighbors and don't want this to continue. So if you have a range extender installed and it sudeenly seems to not be working - this is why, it's not the device.
Really shady AT & T
