    I have a wireless/connection router. I use a enternet cord because the wi-fi doesn't reach me (I stay in a mini-house 30 yards from the modem, enternet cord passed underground.) Is there something I could connect to my enternet cord to have wi-fi feed in my house?

    You could simply connect the end of the ethernet cable that runs to your house to a wireless router in your house. This will give you wi-fi in your house so you won't be tethered to that darn ethernet cable. :cool:

    Alternatively you could try using a Wireless N router/Wi-Fi card, which has longer range, and, if necessary, a repeater.

    Yes, you should. There's no reason to have only one router, especially if you are as far away from that router as you indicate.

    The second router would basically create a new access point in your place, using the first router to get the signal from. Just hook up the ethernet cord into the second routers WAN port, and set up your access point like normal.
