Hi and welcome to TSF,
Updating the routers firmware probably won't get you extended wireless coverage to where you want it.
Above are some of the reasons one that has been left is walls. They are important especially in older house's because they are generally thicker, router signals sometimes cannot get thru.
Some possile fixs:
1. Router with an ethernet cable coming from main router Lan port to secondary router WAN port, or a Lan to Lan connection for sharing Files and folders of different computers.
2. If only one computer use Powerline Adapters have to configure Powerline Adapters to see each other doumentation will tell you how to.
3. Use Powerline Adapters with a router upstairs in a Lan to Lan connection.
4. Use a Range Extender(Wireless repeater) and place halfway between your main router and computers.
