Better wireless connection

Hello again!

My apologies if I've posted this already, my memory is somewhat overdosing on information right now. :D

The problem I'm having is this: I want to have a better Internet connection, since as you may have noticed by my posts, I am a avid gamer. However, the modem my family uses is in another room, thus the need for wireless connection. What I was wondering (meaning asking for advice from you guys/gals) is this:

Since I tend to use the computer more often than those who use the computer the modem is currently plugged into (which, needless to say, isn't used much and when it is, only for a short while and only on a Internet browser) should I move the modem to the other computer to gain better Internet?

Need to clarify first:

If you want better internet as in "faster internet", you can put it in any room you like and it won't make any difference whatsoever.
What you really want to do is get a better wireless signal. Which isn't going to solve anything.

Your best bet would be to either move your system closer to the router so you can run a network cable and from it, or consider some other form of networking such as Homeplug (http://www.homeplugs.co.uk/ for example) which, providing all the plugs go through the same fusebox/breaker (which is the cast for 99% of homes), will work. Router -> Network Cable -> Homeplug. On your machine: Network adapter -> cable -> second homeplug. That's all there is to it.
