Based in the UK, I volunteer for a small charity and have maintained their computers and network for over 8 years without any formal training i.e. get a problem, search online and solve it.
At the moment I have 18 devices connected. 5 towers (4LAN-1Homeplug) 4 laptops and an every increasing number of mobile devices (wifi). The wifi is extended using an Edimax EW-7416APn wireless access point.
Previously the setup used 2 Edimax EW-7416APn wireless access points, enabling access to wifi on one of our boats, but after a power outage 2 yrs ago the setup stopped functioning. These WAPs were not setup by myself but by a prisoner from the local open prison who had far superior network knowledge than myself. He was released and never seen again.
The wireless router is in area 4 at top right corner of room connected via a 24 port switch in the black area with another switch in area 5 at top left corner.
In area 5 there are 2 towers (LAN) and Edimax 1 which extends wifi (now been reset and simply plugged in)

What we need is wireless access on boat 1 (which has been done before using Edimax 2) and when succesful hopefully using another edimax the same on boat 3. Both boats are static and used as classrooms by all the schools in the local area. Both boats are steel hulled
So if anyone could help with
A] which if any should be the repeater? and settings if possible
B] anything else, that could help achieve the results even if it means buying better equiptment or alternative solutions,
