If it's strong enough to reliably reach the basement, it will be
strong enough to annoyingly reach everybody in the neighborhood.  I
live in a condo where right now I'm looking at 8 networks; at peak
times in the evening I sometimes see a couple dozen which obviously
means contention.  Dropped packets, even connections etc, are clearly
more frequent in the mid-evening.

In a single house you probably won't have that much network density,
but still I recommend you just get any reputable router and a wire
long enough to reach the first floor.
