Dear bros,

I currently using Asus RT-N56 router which sometime I get poor signal in my bedroom and also when I play PS4 via wifi (not possible to LAN)

Recently I bought a mibox S to stream Netflix and YouTube on my TV. The buffer for 4k video is bad, I am currently using MR 1gb fibre plan.

Planning to upgrade my current router any recommendations as in to increase my house coverage ? Is my issue due to the "old" RT-N56 router?
The issue also lies with M1 1GBPs plan

I was told by the CSO that it's normal to receive 500MBPs speed for the 1GBPs plan
