Have you experimented with the orientation of the antennas on your
access point? They radiate least strongly on their axis.

If the present antennas are removable, you might try attaching a 3, 4,
or 5 dBi antenna in their place. There are some that stand on a metal
or plastic base which are made especially for extending the range of an
access point or wireless adapter indoors.
