Best way to configure an Apple wireless network

I have a newer Airport Extreme downstairs in the kitchen and 3 Airport Expresses.
1 in the same room as the extreme, 1 on the landing approx 50ft east of the extreme and 1 inside the master bedroom which is approx 15ft from the landing express and nearly directly above the extreme in the kitchen below.

I still have weak signal  area's, even with being close to an express unit upstairs.

I currently have the expresses configure to extend the main wifi network setup on the extreme.
I have several iPhones/iPads, a couple of wifi connected pc's, webcams, laptops etc, some connected via ethernet directly to the extreme and one off of a express. Some clients are wifi G and some are N, no A's or B's though.

Is that the best way to have it setup or should I use WDS ?

Please change each device to operate on a different frequency. The can all still use G or N.

Also, what kind of walls are there in the home; plaster or drywall(gyprock)?

Arethere a lot of other wireless networks found in your neighbourhood?

Are there a lot of obstructions or walls between the devices?

Are they all on the same wireles frequency?

You'll have to have the kryptonite plating removed from the walls to get good signal.
