BBVI wireless router question

We have a Linsys router at one end of the house that is whatever BBVI installed in January 2010. We now need that signal to be able to be picked up (strong so that nobody's gaming is disturbed) approximately 60-70' away through (4) 6" concrete walls. Is that possible? And if so, what do we need to do other than hard-wiring it?

Thanks!

I use Ethernet-Over-Power, it allows you to use your electrical wiring to run the connection over.

A linksys router will not go through 4 concrete walls, so you will either have to run an Ethernet cable from one end of the house to the other, or go with TheChambills suggestion and use Ethernet-Over-Power.

Thanks, all! I can't run an ethernet since it's a rental, so I guess I'll have to try the other option and hope for the best!

Ethernet over power works well for me. I use it in location where my WiFi is weak.

The last time I was in Radio Shack they had a pair on sale for $80 - $90.

OK, so I bought this from eBay and received it today. It turns out that this is NOT what we need. So... I'm selling a brand new pair of D-Link Express EtherNetwork DWL-P200 PoE Adapter for exactly what I paid for it -- $40.00. If anyone's interested, please PM me!
