Need Help With Wireless Bridging

Hello all, I have recently perchased high speed WiFi for my house so I could do some gaming on my Xbox. Problem is my roommate, who is a tech support professional, set the modem up in his bedroom, my Xbox is old and requires a wireless adapter to pick up signals but since the modem is so far away from it it barely recieves the signal. So currently I'm paying for nothing so I confronted him about this issue and he attempted to fix it by wirelessly bridging a router to the modem but after a month he hasn't succeeded and has given up so now it's up to me and I have no clue where to even begin. The modem we have is a Cisco DPC3825 and the router is a NetGear Wireless-N Router WVR2000 V2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Move the modem in to your room. 

draw a layout of of your house and where the stuff is located.  Do you have a cable port anywhere close to the center of your house?  Does wireless work on anything else?

You'll want -70 or lower (-60).  If you get in to the high 70's or 80's you'll pr

-60 is actually higher, not lower than -70 dbm. We always get into this mistake (me included).

Denver: I did not actually understand what kind of bridging you want to do?

The modem already has a wireless transmitter. I think you mean the router is picking up the wireless signal and provide the xbox with connectivity via wired cable. is that right?

If correct, It looks like the issue is with the distance/barriers between your modem and router. You need to try to eliminate some barriers in between to get better signl. Try also to put the devices as close as possible to each other.

As per my understanding you need to increase your frequency range that might be possible with using a metal or copper wire serving as antenna. Also make sure that the default gateway is configured properly on the wireless router.
