I have a 2 story home that is roughly 3700 sqft and the modem and old router were placed in the basement centered in the middle of the home. ...

One directly next to my modem in the basement centralized in the home. ... Every corner of my home is registering 70/5-6Mbps throughput. ... Solved the WiFi dead areas 100%.  ...  "
