Question Ethernet wifi booster?

Is there such a thing a WiFi booster with an Ethernet port in it?

What I'm trying to do is buy an Apple airport express and my WiFi router is a good distance from the room I want to put it in. Do I have to buy a really long Ethernet cable or is there like a WiFi booster that I can plug it in the desired room and then connect an Ethernet cable?:con fused::con fused:
