Help with wi-fi/ethernet

I have a dedicated home theater room that lacks ethernet. It also has separate wiring from the rest of the house so powerline adapters won't work for internet.

I get a fair W-IFI signal in the room and I am wondering what would be the best way to set up for a ethernet cable to my Marantz sr7008 receiver. I am hoping that perhaps a mesh system would be the answer or will an extender do as good a job.

It is impractical to run cable from my modem.

The purpose would be to enable the sending of music, video and streaming from my pc.

I have been trying to find answers online for some time but have not had any success.

I did use a cheap extender with limited success in the past.

Thanks

Mesh system works really well... Nest Wi-Fi from Google for example. As for cheap extenders, you get what you pay for.

Marantz SR7013, Polk Signature S60s/S30/S15s/HTS12s, Polk MC80 (x4), AC Infinity T9/S9, AAB4 HTPC,...still to come - Panasonic DP-UB820K, 82" 4K QLED or eqv.

Thanks for the replies. I have been trying to work this out for a while.


I will go with a high rated system at a Black Friday price.
