Reliable Internet Signal Booster

Are there any good & reliable INTERNET SIGNAL WIRELESS BOOSTERS on the market? I can only receive a very weak signal for my computer on the second floor. I have read reviews praising these devices to reviews stating that these boosters don't work at all. I would certainly appreciate any recommendations you can provide. Thanks in advance.
