Wireless Network Set up Question

I have a : Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Router EA4500 ,
and 2 RE1000 Range Extender.

What is best way to set up these devices for best full signal coverage all around?

I currently did auto set up on both RE1000s and both show they're on Channel 2 ... ..



Thanks ,

Do IP Addresses on the extenders matter?

Think one is : xxx.xxx.xxx.139
and other is : xxx.xxx.xxx.124

Sometimes I get 2-3 signal bars on 1 computer about 15 feet from one range extender ,
Is low signal strength only on One Computer when 15 feet away? If Yes, update the drivers on Wi-Fi, check settings under Advanced Tab of WLAN adapter.

Settings like:
Operational Frequency WLAN is set to.
802.11x mode
Channel that WLAN is operating on
Transmit Power
Aggressiveness
