Increase the range of powers that restore hit points or provide a bonus to your allies by a number of squares equal to your Charisma modifier.

Power Daily (Free Action)
Use this power when you grant one or more allies a power bonus. Increase that bonus by 1 for all targets for the duration of that power.
If you've reached at least one milestone today, increase the affected bonus by 2.
affects Commander's Strike making it a ranged attack instead of Melee 1.

Since Commander's Strike does provide a bonus to damage through Intelligence modifier, it should increase range by the Charisma modifier of the character.

Is there any rule that stops the Melee 1 range from changing into a longer range?

Commander's Strike isn't melee 1, it is Melee Weapon. It would become Melee Weapon+Cha for range, yes, but it will still be a melee attack.
the same applies for the feat Staff Expertise.  Your Commander's Strike becomes Melee Weapon+1 for range, but it is still a melee attack.
