+1 for Asus

I am currently using an Asus AC 87U router and an AC87 access point.
The Asus AC 87U allows you to alter the RF output up to the maximum legal limit, (for your country).

Also, bear in mind that 2.4Ghz is better at getting the signal through solid objects, but 5Ghz transmits data faster. The AC87 access point is 5ghz only.

I'm surprised how anyone remotely technical can stay sane after an interation with an ISP support team.

I'll give you one example.

ISP Support: Your line is OK
Me: Can you year that crackle?
ISP Support: Yes but your line is OK.
