That is correct. Another option is to run a cable from the existing wireless router to a point that is closer to the conservatory, and install a new wifi Access point.
Here's an example of one (NOTE: I have not used this myself, but I would if in your position)
If you do this, you should configure the wireless router AND the access point so that they use different channels. Confusingly, it is not sufficient to make sure the channel numbers are different - they should be at least 5 channels apart - so you could run one of them on channel 1, the other on any channel higher than 6.
If you have the scope to wire a couple of metres closer, then this would be worth a try.
I have seen powerline/homeplug work well, too. Many adaptors do not have wi-fi, though, so be careful which one you choose.
Whether using a powerline adaptor or installing another access point, i'd recommend that you choose one that supports 802.11n , to at least 150Mbps.
Hope this all isnt too complicated!
