    I use this TP-link myself with great results - in combination with a netgear router

    You could look at a simple powerline device.

    Plug the brick into the wall socket at each end and connect one to your existing router and the other to your computer in the black-spot.

    Alternatively connect a cheap WiFi gateway to the powerline brick in the black spot if you want to use WiFi.

    One small point that is often missed when extending a WiFi system. You need to put the extender in a spot where it can receive your current WiFi at a decent bitrate and also will supply a WiFi signal at the required bit-rate in the black-spot. That is not always an easy thing to achieve, consequently I recommended a powerline solution to bring your network into the black-spot area. You can then use a wired or wireless solution in that area as you require.

    Hope that helps.
