boost signal with second router?

I am a realtor and I just moved upstairs from my office. I have a wireless router (a) in the basement, three floors down, and another one (b) up here. Is there a way I can pick up the signal from (a) and direct it into (b) which I would use with my Mac tower. My laptop has Airport, the tower doesn't. I don't want to run a cable up here, and my broker is well aware of what I am trying to do.

How can that be accomplished? Router (b) is a Linksys WRT54G. Not sure what router (a) is. We have a highspeed cable connection, not dsl.

Any assistance well appreciated.

Use powerline networking to make an ethernet bridge from the downstairs router to your upstairs router using the building's AC circuit.

Get the 85 Mbps version- supposed to be more reliable.
