See powerline adapters with wifi capability or wifi booster.

If you didn't have a FIOS router I would have recommended to change your firmware to TomatoUSB. You can strengthen the antennas to get quite a bit more coverage, turn them up too much you could fry the router but a search on Google would tell you the safe amount to boost it. You will have to get WiFi boosters like BC said though since I don't believe TomatoUSB has support for FIOS.
