Need a Better Signal

I have a Shaw Wireless Modem SMS on my top floor of my house, and I am having a issue with a loss of signal in the basement.

I cannot move this modem, as its required in the spot I need it.

I have ran a cable from the modem all the way in the basement for an xbox as I couldn't keep a signal strong enough for this to work.

I run about 15-20 wireless devices off this modem and have all four ports full also.

1 to Shaw Box

1 to PS3

1 to Weather station

1 to Xbox in Basement

I was wondering if I can run a wireless router off one of the ports.

Example, the line I ran down to the basement, can I plug this into a wireless router, and then use the wireless router to give a wireless signal to the xbox and a couple other devices in the basement.

If this can be done, what is required to do this.
