By right do not touch the antenna at all. They should be standing upright. Just switch on the beam forming feature on the router and the router should do the job. Just put the router at a higher position. 5Ghz Wifi bandwidth should be 80Mhz instead of 40/80 Mhz. Your device wifi adaptor is important too. This AC1200G+ router is only good for small home like HDB and not for large home. Wifi mesh is best.

isnt the 5Ghz wifi for shorter range , and the 2.4Ghz for longer range?

Your router is not at the correct location la. Please share floor plan.
Most ASUS router has Beamforming but not all, just go to the wifi setting to see whether it is there. 5Ghz Wifi bandwidth should be 80 Mhz and 2.4Ghz wifi should be 40 Mhz. Best to put the router at a higher position in the centre of the home. 5Ghz is for shorter range but should be able to cover your flat.

You can.
My room contain a data point connect to a powered hub.
The hub is a 8 ports and have 7 ports available for such:
AP Router, hdd server, desktop, 2 laptops, etc.
Beside my room have an additional data point for starhub IPTV.

It is best to have the main Router near to the ONT & TP.

Data point is using LAN cable, usually Cat-6.
Both end consist of data points.
One end is normal next /near to ONT /Router, usually in the DB box.
As in standard bto flat where all the data points are, and the other end are in living and bedrooms.
If not it can run via trucking from points to points.
If bto flat after mid 2013, telephone points can be converted to data points.
Older flats may be complicate as the telephone wire may not have enough wires for data usage, but some are able to.

I have gotten ac1200g+ to act as a access point. My main router is ac88u.. can i check the connection will be from ac88u LAN to ac1200g+ WAN? Or LAN?

When i set it to access point in the admin weblink, what other setting i need to change? IP add? Dhcp?

In my situation as new bto flat.
As mine do not have the data points provided, so the contractor has to lay the lan cables inside a piping before the flooring is done.
Hence there are data points in each bedrooms.
The living room data point is already done.

As for my 2nd data point, my isp installer did convert the telephone point to data point.
It is done free due to my recontract is due and consider as new sign up with free 1 data point installation, which i saved $100 should i have to pay.
As the installer mentioned telephone point is Cat-6 type so conversion instead on trucking.
