Thank you to everyone for their suggestions. Running a long cable was my first choice but with a one year old in the house it wasn't really an option. She just pulls on any cable she finds. And I would have needed at least 50m to run it along walls/etc.

I did try adding a repeater but it was a very frustrating experience. I tried two different repeaters and both had the same issue - they would lose their connection to the base station PC after 5 minutes, This makes me think there is an issue on the PC side - it's a mac mini. The first repeater I tried was a Buffalo and then I tried an Apple Airport Express. Both were easy to set up and both mysteriously lose their connection.

Thank you for that recommendation Nikolay. I've just bought a WZR-450HP and will try it out tonight. I didn't realize that some Buffalo routers run DD-WRT as their stock configuration management tool!
