Let me split my requirements into two :

1. Tired with the antics of my local cablewallah, I approached my ISP and a friend there suggested a way out by setting up a wimax type connection straight from the nearest NOC less that 1 kilometre away from home. For the purpose, I would have to buy and install an outdoor CPE unit at my home and they will do the needful at their end. I am only able to find one TP-Link model for around 3k or thereabouts, but I would like to know if there are better options available, after all its for the purpose of a stable and reliable 24x7 internet connectivity. Is TP-Link a reliable brand?

2. My home router is a measly Asus RT-N10E serving us rather well. This router is stationed in my room on the first floor. The signal in the farthest room in the ground floor is patchy and inconsistent, however, it does work more often than not. I would like to have a router with slightly more range than my current model. Do not want to spend much on this either, so what are my options?

Thanks
