The signal getsweaker the further away you go from a router or hub, and the signals do weaken subastantially when they go through walls and floors.

Try setting your WAP / AP (wireless access point / access point ) antennas at a 45 degree angle to allow more of the wireless frequencies to go in a vertical ( up / down ) direction.
