Ideal world you'd have Cat 6 cabling or something, but that's not practical for many.

Next best bet would be to look at powerline adapters, and either connect equipment directly, or add an access point off one.

The best solution is to drill some holes in walls and ceilings in order to install Ethernet cabling (cat 5e or cat 6), best terminated at RJ45 wall sockets. Some floorboards may have to be lifted upstairs. For most people, hire an electrician or builder to do this.
