The one option you may want to consider is using a separate larger antenna that looks a lot like the old stand up straight cb radio whip type you place on the floor. I've seen a few of those lately while looking around for a suitable replacement for the cable modem the ISP provided here.

Another idea to consider for boosting the range which will in effect increase the signal strength would be "How to Add Extra Antennas to a Wireless Router"! How to Add Extra Antennas to a Wireless Router |

The article there goes into adding one or more to the existing setup. One other option would be adding access points as another way to boost the signal. For large factory buildings that's a common practice to cover vast floor spaces when not being hard wired.
