Signal strength is a lot better from everywhere in the house now with the new modem and I am yet to try the file transfers. I will update on speeds soon.

The Asus model has 20/40hz option and it is Dual Band and more reliable he said. I was going to buy the WR1043ND but realised its not a modem, just a router. I wanted to replace the Telecom router because it required a restart every few days to be alive.

Went and bought ASUS dsl-n55u for 198 from PB Tech, the sales person convinced me I dont need another repeater and would probably make this work for the whole house because its Dual Band and has both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz 

Setting up now


sales person said that to get a sale.

5GHz is useless between rooms, and the 2.4Ghz may or may not be better than what you have. With the antennas it will probably be a bit better but I doubt you will see decent speeds at the other end of the house.

Output power may be up so you see more bars on the device, but if it doesnt also have more sensitivity it will still be erratic and have huge latency since it cant hear the devices that well.

That is why its foolish buying a massive power amplifier for your indoor accesspoint, all it does is make more bars show on your device and not really help with stability. I have actually turned the power down on my accesspoints when I can so that devices will disconnect from them sooner and go find a better one to connect to. First consumer networking provider to make a home network friendly managed accesspoint solution will get some money from me ;)
