Hi

I recently moved my office in my basement
my computer can get the wifi signal no problem
But my terminal to process credit card is supposed to be wired to the internet

Since I move all my office I would need a few hundred feet of Ethernet wire and go trough multiple wall to bring the Ethernet wire to my desk.

Any other option to connect my credit card terminal ?
Is there any device that could catch the wifi and get it to my terminal via an Ethernet wire

Thanks

Yes that's what I had before but to go to my basement using wire is a big job.

Is there some device like a router or a spliter that could receive the wifi signal in my basement and transfer it via a cable to my cc terminal ?

You could try powerline ethernet - provided the plug near your router/modem is on the same electrical circuit as the plug near your credit card machine.  Powerline ethernet simply sends the signal through the existing electrical wires in your house so you don't have to run ethernet cables.  It has jacks on both modules - one to plug the router/modem into and one to plug the credit card machine into.
