I live in apartment, my router is on my room, my wifi signal does not reach my living room. I've tried change the antena for 10 dbi, I've tried change the router for another with three antena and still nothing. I've tried put another router on the middle but it's not working very well. how can I do that ?

You can use a second router as an extender as described here ...

If you can run a cable between the two routers, that would give the best results
or use powerline networking adapters.

Most easy (if you can) is relocating the router.
Between the router and the living room there are walls. The badest thing is a mirror in between the router and the playe you want to get Wifi, but mostly in an appartement there is a lot of metal in the walls. So there will be no wifi coming trough.

When you cannot replace the router, there is a possibility to use Power Lan. These boxes use the electricity wires as a network cable. At the place your router is, you place such a box, connected to the router. In the living room you place a second, and another router or access point you connect to the powerlan.
