How would one go about extending an optimum wifi connection? I would assume a bridge would be better than a repeater so the network wouldn't suffer from reduced bandwidth, however I have learned I would need to know the MAC address of their router which I do not have access to... what would you suggest?

    Unfortunately, questions from an end-user of a corporate network are specifically off-topic. You will need to ask this of the network administrators.

You run a cable to the network and add an access point; you did say optimum, and optimum is carried on wires (and fibers) until it reaches an AP which is physically near the end user devices.
