General question so here's a general answer; signal strength will depend on the type of signal type, g or n from the router and the distance your laptops are from the router. Generally a room or two's distance from the router should be fine without to much interference in the way. If all the laptops are connected and downloading for example, there will only be so much broadband to go around. Unless you have an upper tier service.

The number of laptops connected to the router via wifi won't effect the signal strength but as Fantail said, the bandwidth will be shared between them so the speed to each individual laptop will depend on how much bandwidth the others are using.

Use speedtest.net to test your speeds after connecting each laptop to the router. Then see if moving the router more centrally or repositioning its antenna increase speed at all. If not and you are not getting the speeds you want, use the router's one-year included Tech Support to ask for help trying another channel, upgrading firmware, etc. They will know best what helps make that router faster. If not ask back with the router name in title to attract another owner's attention.
