|You might also consider the Homeplug method for extending an ethernet connection to most if not all areas in your home.|
The Homeplug system carries the lan around the home via mains wiring.. You plug ne module into a mains outlet adjacent to the router; connect the router to it via a cat-5/ethernet cable. Plug another module in a suitable mains outlet elsewhere - in your case roughly where you might place an extender (or just about any router of anybreasonable age); then configure the extender or router to radiate/extend wifi.
Homeplugs provide one ethernet outlet per module; which obviously can provide the connection connection for the extender, or another computer.
There are also Homeplug modules which act as a wifi access point.
Using Homeplugs avoids trailng cables around the home, and is a safer option?
The benefit of using an ethernet cable to "feed" the extender or router is assurd stability and quality of signal.
