Windows 7: Need to increase the Wifi strength

Need to increase the Wifi strength

Hello Friends

I bought a connection from my ISP and they gave me a Wifi modem. My main issue is that the range of the device is only 10 Mtrs. I want to increase the range as I want my dad to use it. I know you will say that he can come in that 10 Mtr range and use it . But, the device is kept on first floor of my house and he is on ground floor and I don't want him to use stairs as he is a heart patient.

I have read about signal boosters. Are they of any use? if yes, which one should I go for? My range would be 40-50 $.

Thanks in advance.
