I have just bought an Airport Extreme and Airport express, as I have quite a large house, so needed to boost the signal (plus its quite a remote area, dont get mobile signal, etc).

I have Airport Extreme connected to the Satellite broadband modem by ethernet cable.. has a green light on and is working and connected fine to my macbook air downstairs..
I have also set up the Airport Express upstairs, which is about 30 ft from the Airport Extreme box (wirelessly) - the airport express is also showing a green light.
The iMac that I have is in a bedroom upstairs and is about 18ft from the Airport Express.. however the signal on my imac is only showing 1 bar on the airport icon on my toolbar on my mac? I was using it for a short while, then I had a message saying I wasnt connected??
Surely the iMac should be picking up the express that is only about 18ft away???
when I check under 'Utilties' and Airport, it is showing the Aiport Extreme and Express on my computer, both showing a green light (that was when I had a faint signal).. It sounds as though, my imac is picking the signal maybe from the extreme downstairs??
