    I'd like to use my macbook upstairs, but I can't, because the default Verizon ActionTec router.

    What could I use to extend the range for my macbook?

    Thanks.

    Install a better wireless router or a wireless repeater.

    My APE is downstairs and I use my MBP upstairs all the time. That Actiontec Router may not have a good reach. I'm upstairs right now and I am getting 22.04 Mbps

    I use the Actiontec as a wired router to feed my AirPort Extreme (downstairs) and Time Capsule (upstairs). I also get good coverage with only one of the Apple devices on.

    Can you relocate the Actiontec to the second floor? Higher antenna height generally gives better range...
