    I use AT&T for my internet and the router's wifi does not reach in the other end of my house. Does Apple or someone else make a booster or range extender that I could use just to extend the range of the AT&T router so that I can get wifi all over my house?

    Yes. Apple makes the Airport Express that will extend your ATT wifi via ethernet cable. They are pretty cheap for the features they provide.

    You could hardwire an Airport Express (in bride mode) to the ATT router, placed at the center or opposite end of the house. Or relocate the ATT router to the a more central location using a length of Ethernet cable.

    I use a power line/homeplug setup to hard wire several expresses around my property to extend wireless coverage.

    Or just plug in the airport express and set it up as a repeater. No need to move anything then. Done and done.

    But only if the ATT router supports WDS otherwise it will need to be connected by hard line.
