How do i extend my wireless network useing two airport extremes?

I currently have two airport extremes and i want to extend my network without using wires. I have it set up properly i think but, for some reason the extenstion isnt reaching my desktop upstairs but the extenstion is reaching my lap top next to it, my brothers even fruther down the hall im sitting right next to my desktop and the bars on my lap top are full but not on my desktop help?

All of the computers im dicussing at "HP" right now were in the transition from "PC's" to Mac products

There are a lot of variables that come into play for wireless signal reception. Does your laptop have an n wireless card? and your desktop possibly have a g? It could be that there is some interference that is causing an issue with your desktop but not affecting the laptop. Try moving your tower a little to each side, as little as 6 inches, and see if you get a noticable difference in signal strenght.
What do you use as wireless adapter for the desktop ?
