check the different places you use your computer in work position (hands on the keyboard) and in watch position (no hands)
check watch positions with 90 degrees rotations also, you might be in for a surprise.
check if antenna position on the router make a difference (it did in my case)
Here are 2 shots one from checking out the spots used in the house and one where I just write this post and see how the signal fluctuates.
This should give you a hint how to optimize your settings. N-band was used, I do not have the low powered but faster AB-bands.
A second computer was active during the tests in the wintergarden (conservatory or glassed porch as they say here in Spain).

Thanks, I’ve used a similar app on my mobile that finds the weak and best spots. That one for Android is called Wifi sweet spot. I have some really thick walls at home and the signal is bad, need to set up a wifi hotspot repeater.

the problem is it will work for your phone but compare it simultaniously with phone and laptop and you should see a difference especially when you have the laptop in working position with the hands all over. I noticed a 5 DBA difference just by turning the laptop in another angle that the side was parallel to the router.
…and thick walls in a Spanish house in Denia, where nearly all houses build in hollow block stones and the inside walls here in Valencia are just as thick as a door frame. Maybe you have a load bearing wall.
