The easiest solution is to purchase a wireless range extender. It will work out of the box with only a few simple options to set up. Available for both G & N networks.
Another solution is to use a wireless router/ AP and set it up as a repeater bridge. If you can live with using G you can flash an old router with DD-WRT and then set it up. (IMHO I get stronger signals using G vs N ).
If you look on e-Bay you can find Linksys 54G routers flashed with DD-WRT for $30 - $50. I set a 54G up last week and it does take some time and experimentation even with good instructions. I had to change settings on both my primary router, access point and repeater bridge. If you aren't experienced tweaking router setting this probably isn't going to be a good option for you.

I have a D-Link DIR-655 Extreme N Gigabit Wireless Router...so it's pretty modern.

If you flash a 54G with DD-WRT or Tomato it will have a huge amount of additional functionality. What it will be lacking is the N band. I currently run two APs and I can't see any increase in range or coverage using N.
