I have a Verizon wireless router that also have 5 Rj45 ports for wire connection, this device only allow 5 wireless connections for 5 computers.

If I connect a Wireless Access point using one of the Rj45 ports can I connect wireless more than 5 computers and if I can, will the signal strength be the same?

I would turn the Wi-Fi OFF on the Verizon router.

Hook up a good solid Wi-Fi router to the Verizon router using Ethernet. Hook a LAN port on the new router to a LAN port on the Verizon.

Log into the Wi-Fi router and give it a Static IP on the Verizon router and then turn DHCP OFF on the new Wi-Fi router.

Pick a router that permits as many Wi-Fi connections as you need.

So doing it this way, will the computers getting the signal from the new router (that allows as many connections as I need) have the same signal strength as the original 5?

The signal strength is a property of the new router. If you select a good router, you should be fine.
