Bad WiFi signal

Joining in

I want to ask for some help to deal with the wifi bad signal I get in my bedroom.

I live in a house with 3 floors and the router is in the middle, my room is at the bottom and the opposite side of the house from the router (router is in the front of the house and my room is at the back) so I get 1 or 2 bars and the signal also dips down to 10mbs up to 70mbs download speed, very inconsistent as and horrible for gaming, for context next to my wifi I get about 200mbs.

And so I wanted to ask what I could do to get full access to my wifi strength. I've heard of a wifi extender and getting a second router but I'm not sure how any of it would work exactly, but I also realised I had an ethernet access port in my room and this could fix my wifi problem as I could just connect it to my pc, unfortunately it's a BT port.

Thanks in advance for any help.

To improve your Wi-Fi signal, consider using a Wi-Fi extender or access point connected to the Ethernet port in your room. This can help provide a stronger signal for better gaming performance.
