You have 14days no questions asked return on Apple purchases from Apple store..
I would definitely open the plastic.. not all plastics are transparent to microwaves.. it could be making it worse.
Your experience could then be that the TC does not improve the wifi at all.. this would in fact be totally expected in 2.4ghz band.. and with older computers..
The improvement will only be at 5ghz and generally later equipment.. or AC wireless.
Are you joining 5ghz.. ?? If you don't know force the connection to 5ghz by using a different name.

I tried connecting to 5ghz but same wifi range... no improvement and i can't connect using the guess account in bridge more... BTW im using a modem and wifi router in one from telco... i just connect lan 1 of the router to my TC... i dont know what to do... im not good at networking

Your setup is fine.. do not use guest network . . it is slow.. maybe by design.
And you cannot use guest in bridge mode.. that is normal.
Turn off the wireless in the ISP modem so you can measure properly how the TC is going.
Fix the wireless channels and use 11, 6, 1 for 2.4ghz in that order.
And use around 40 and around 150 for 5ghz.. the lower channel is often much better.
Do not expect great improvement with old clients.. it just ain't gonna happen.

I bought time capsule because i saw in reviews and feedback that it significantly increase in terms of range... but i was just 5-7 meters away with just a wall between and the signal bar turned 2 bars.

Just return it.. no sweat.
The Asus RT-AC66U (or even N66U) are the power house for domestic WiFI.
Even the new TP-Link AC model is up there.. but Apple's is well down the list..
Although this comparison is using PC client.
