what linksys are you running? you might be able to save some money by putting a non  standard firmware on it and ramping up the signalhttp://lifehacker.com/178132/hack-attack-turn-your-60-router-into-a-600-router

Have you tried adding the high gain antennae to the linksys?

I did and it didn't help much ... for me.  Have just installed a netgear WNDR3700 - wireless router and it's great I now have a reasonable signal upsatirs at the front of the house from downstairs at the back.

ideas:

-Upstairs put on your computer a high gain antenna
-Install a wireless repeater in the middle of you house where the signal is best and the ability for you to get the best signal up stairs. Or install a repeater upstairs which boosts the signal but receives a great signal (some where your computer or you might not or can not be - ie., on a wall etc).
-Toss the linksys and obtain a wireless router which has higher gain (more antennas etc)
-Take a pringles can ... just kidding....
-See where the wireless router down stairs can be moved to give you getter signal.  Pending on the wireless location, antenna direction and house.  You may get better results in a different spot downstairs due to interferrance.  Some time changing to a different Ghz channel makes a difference due to other wave conflicts.
-You may need to use a laptop to do a survey of the house to find where wireless is best between both floors.
