I am currently building a gaming pc and will put it in my room. My router and modem are downstairs. Is it possible to install and Ethernet port in my room so I could have a wired connection? How much would it cost? Also, what router would you recommend for fast speed (I have 400/20) and will be able to support a lot of devices? Somewhere in the 75-100 range.

Yes it is possible to get ethernet cable between floors. I would recommend you look online for low-voltage cable installation specialists in your town. Most cities have some. Ask one to come and give you an estimate. I have no way to guess what it would cost without looking at your specific situation.

400Mbit requires a pretty good router. You want something with a dual core CPU. If you can find a used Asus AC87U for $100 that would be your best bet.
