Can you elaborate where to find to set Tx signal to 2mAR5k eish. A R1200 Mikrotik set to 2mA Tx (send signal) on the wifi goes POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOF far.... I used one on the far end of an L shaped farm house. Got enough signal on the furthest end of the house to stream 360p YT. That was with no tweaking to the wifi what so ever.
I'm 90% sure this was the model used in the above setup. MikroTik RouterBOARD RB951UI-2HND - radio access point
Ubiquiti is good, but doesn't give the furthest distance per se.
Make sure the Asus has 100% Tx on + is on a free channel (Ideally 1;6;11 for 2.4Ghz ; cant recall 5ghz)
So what's the selling point of the more expensive routers then? Just marketing fluff and cosmetics?Generally swopping a single unit Router for another single unit router isn't going to make all that much difference as they are all limited in output by legalese.
The better bet is to have an additional access point added to the mix or relocating the current router to a position that actually works.
Which is why multi AP systems like Unifi and other Mesh options exist.
There simply isn't one single Router to rule them all.
More than likely there is something specifically wrong with the location you are placing the router, like a geyser overhead or neighbours interference etc.

Its not an apples vs apples comparison, but have been struggling with a netgear AP (wifi extender) dropping quite regularly and no signal the last month or so.
