    Does changing to this router improve coverage and speed


    Hello,

    I am using asus rt-ac1200G+ router with wifi5 devices (e.g. phone) now, it has 2.4GHz and 5Ghz, the furthest room does not have wifi signal (sometimes have very weak signal).

    Q1. If I change to asus rt-ax55 router (only change router, everything else unchanged) and use it with my wifi5 devices, will my furthest room be able to get wifi signal?

    Q2. If I change to asus rt-ax55 router (only change router, everything else unchanged) and use it with my wifi5 devices, will the speed of wifi increases for the wifi5 devices?

    Q3. I read the asus ax55 is better than ac1200G+ router, does it improve the range (wider coverage area) of wifi5 or wifi6 devices?

    Q4. I read the asus ax55 is better than ac1200G+ router, does it improve the speed of wifi5 or wifi6 devices?

    Q5. Does asus ax55 allow my furthest room to get better wifi signal than ac1200g+ when using with wifi5 devices?

    Q6. Is it fine to mount my router to the wall behind my TV? (from front can only see TV, router is hidden behind on wall) e.g. mount on the wall at the red circle area in this screenshot https://i.imgur.com/ioigmnV.png

    Q7. Do I need to protrude 4 router antenna above the TV? (from front can only see TV and router 4 antenna extending out from top of TV, router rectangle box body (on wall) is hidden behind Tv)

    Thanks

    If you are not getting full coverage, you need to start looking at a Mesh system. Simply changing hardware to the same style is not going to fix your problem.
