Why is the electrical wire so short

Don't add an extention cord to an extention cord! Buy a 100' 14/4 extension cord and tie the end to the fence so it won't come un plugged.
If the plug keeps popping out of the short cord at the blower,wrap the cord around the handle to prevent disconnection.

I have dsl by embarq and want to move my desktop pc into a room with no phone line.

There's three options you can consider:

1) Stick with a wired connection. If you're just moving the PC to an adjacent room, you can buy a longer ethernet cable. I have a 25-foot cable myself, and you can potentially find them up to 100-foot long. Of course, this can be a trip hazard, so if you go this route, take appropriate safety precautions! This also might not be a good idea if you have pets or small children who can play with or get tangled in the wires.

2) Move to a wireless connection. This will probably be more of an investment for you. First, your desktop needs to have a some way to communicate wirelessly, which it might not have. You can figure this out by checking the Network Connections in your Control Panel. If your PC doesn't have wireless, you can buy a network card or other solution from Best Buy.

If it does, then you can move on to the wireless router. These are common, you can find them at Walmart for about $50. Once you unpack it, refer to the user guide for installation instructions. Do not move your desktop until after you have set up your wireless router. You need a wired connection for setup. Also keep in mind that wireless has a maximum range, and can be affected by signal interference and physical barriers (walls, etc).

3) Have the phone company install another port in the new room. This is probably the most expensive option by far, so I would only suggest it if the above two won't work for you for whatever reason.

Good luck!

How can I increase my WIFI range. My internet signal is very weak when I am in my bedroom. Can I increase my range by possibly buying a signal extender.

Try moving the wireless router around and or higher.
If the wireless router is in a different room and the room has concrete walls of foils insulation in the walls, this will weaken the wireless signal. AND/OR
You can connect add a antenna to your computer. Have a look at this device. Normal 0 USB High Gain Antennas

What type of wifi router should I buy

you can add any router you want. since the surfboard is just a modem, you can add any router you want. just make sure that after you plugin a router into the surfboard, that you disconnect the surfboard from it's power, wait 10 seconds and then reconnect the power. this is to let the surfboard see the router since it is known to remember it's last connected device.

"Cannot display this video mode"

first thing check all power cables and monitor cables are plugged in properly , also you might check the monitor cable , inside the medal housing to see if any pins were broke off while moving. this would be an easy fix , just buy a new cable. if not check to see if you have a video card and that it is not moving around and properly seated to motherboard. if not most pc's are onboard video which would be entirely different issue. most of the time when moving pc's its usually a simple fix.

You have to install a wireless network card in your main PC, and then you can put the router anywhere that you want it.
