I have a modem that gives out Wi-Fi like a router.

But when I get to my room on the other side of the house the wifi is pretty weak.

We have an old router in the basement, and was wondering if I could run an ethernet cable to the other side of the house to the router.


Would this cause any problems? Or is there another way to fix the problem.

Yes you can, just be sure they will work on different channel and  SSID.
in order to avoid cables you can use Access point repeater in your case.
Here you can read how the AP repeater works info
