    OP, go for Asus RT-AC68U over Netgear N7000 sice it has beamforming and MerlinWRT which is somehwat better than DDWRT if you're into 3rd party firmwares for routers. It;s worth every penny.

    I have the Asus RT AC66U already. Won't that do?

    ^ Yes. That's a good router as well. If that doesn't cut it then I'm afraid you have to look into enterprise grade AP.

    @manojrk - how come the AC66U barely works out side the room with the router and the room adjacent to it? The rest of the house it is quite poor. That's my question.

    There are many external factors that cause poor wifi signal reception. 5GHz range is extremely limited. Use Wifi analyzer app and check if there is any interference on 2.4GHz.
