Default Weak Wifi Signal Advice

Hi Guys

Looking for some advice about the wifi at my dads house. We live in an old style house which has really thick stone walls.

We having issues with the wifi signal in the outer rooms, its available, but only just.

Im trying to find out the best way of boosting the signal to the outer rooms.

The router we have in at the moment is a Netgear DG834G which is located pretty much dead center of the house downstairs. Iv installed a wireless repeater but due to the layout of the house it isn't working too well, if i move it close enough to the other rooms to give them a decent signal it doesnt pick up a strong enough signal from the router.

I was thinking of installing a wired AP up to one of the outer rooms which would solve the problem in my eyes, or how about upgrading to a better router?

What does any one else think
