Help with Home Networking

I know from my lack of knowledge this is probably a basic question but I'm a little frustrated with figuring this out.
I have Verizon DSL coming in to the main floor of the house right into a Verizon 7500 modem/router combo. I do not have internet hard wired to any computers. For the most part, the signal is decent on the main floor. I have had to reset the modem/router often but think it's a pretty poor piece of equipment.
My bigger problem is I get no signal in the finished basement. My understanding is that this is fairly common in older/thicker homes. The basement is finished and I would really like to use wireless devices there. What is the best approach? If I need to add a wired access point in the basement, any recommendations?
