    To maximise the affective radius of an AirPort you should try to place it in a central place to all the computers that will use it and try to minimise putting it near or on metal objects such as shelving units and fridges. also try not to place it on the other side of brick walls to the computers networking with the airport. if you continue to have problems with extending the range you can get an AirPort express and when configured (the Apple set up software can help you with this) can connect to your current network and extend the range both wirelessly and the through the ethernet port.
