Can I get my own wifi in a duplex?

Hello. I rent month to month and have lived here for 4 years roughly.

Wifi is included and the router is with the landlord in the basement apartment, but I think it’s wired through the whole house

We’ve always had wifi issues and he’s gotten new routers, even changed companies.

Around 6 pm it gets crazy choppy and slow. I think we legit need our own wifi up here.

Would it work? Or would it mess with his wifi?

I think it’s the only way for us to have stable wifi.

    Putting in a new wifi router will not mess with his in the least.  This is no different than an apartment building with all the renters having their own ISP and wifi installed.  

    Now, there is a caveat there.  The landlord may not WANT you to put a hole in the wall to bring in a new line.  Discuss with them, and if you are allowed, then get it in writing before you order it.

    I guess, you can but talk to your landlord if he will allow.
