Sounds to me that it might be time to upgrade your AP's - they're obsolete b/g models.

Something like the 1142a/b/g/n would be good - 802.11n also improves transmission to non-802.11n devices

The other things that you might like to look at is the AP density, a good rule of thumb is 1 AP per 450m2 for data and 1x AP per 280m2 for voice

You should also look at disabling 1,2,5.5 and 11Mbps throughput (802.11b) as this slows down 802.11g communications
