Terrible WIfi signal after installing new Apple Airport Express. Help!

Ive always had some issues with the wireless signal in my Brooklyn apartment, even though the router is only about 30 ft from my iMac. It's inconsistent, usually slow and sometimes dial-up style slow. I was told that baby monitors and other devices might be interrupting my signal.
I recently sold the my Linksys Cisco e3000 router and got this Apple Airport Express and somehow it's even worse than before. I've tried everything I can think of in terms the setup diagnostics. Could I have set it up in a way that's making it fail? I've also tried to move it slightly close to my computer room but I cant get much closer, and I don't think the distance is far enough to make it this useless. My last one at least worked 60% of the time, this thing is complete piece of nice looking junk so far. I did recently put an ac in the window of my room , but I don't use it much and the connection is crap whether it's on or off. Could that have made any difference?
I work at home and need a connection. As of now, it's almost completely dead even though it shows 2 bars in strength. Web pages won't load , emails take 15 mins to send , etc. Any advice, or similar problems out there?
