Extend Wireless Network

I need to extend my business wireless network into a large room that is mostly cut off from the wireless signal by a very thick stone wall unless the door is open. There is however a LAN drop that is connected to the same switch that the wireless router is connected (please see attached diagram). The question is whether the original router will be able to supply DHCP through the access point in the other room or do I need two routers...

Take a look at this article.

The last section is about extending your wireless range with another airport extreme.
Check out the TP Link TL-WR700N. You can use this to repeat the signal, you'd have to position it pretty close to the room but still in a good signal coverage. Best part, you should to get it for $30.
