Are some routers more powerful?
Most new routers use the 802.11ac standard, which is capable of faster wireless speeds than other routers.
If your ISP offers speeds of 100Mbps or more, routers with the 802.11am standard will be able to handle it.
Dual-band routers are also typically better in high-density areas..
How far will a good router reach?
A general rule of thumb in home networking says that Wi-Fi routers operating on the traditional 2.4 GHz band reach up to 150 feet (46 m) indoors and 300 feet (92 m) outdoors. Older 802.11a routers that ran on 5 GHz bands reached approximately one-third of these distances.

Does WiFi go through walls?
In theory, Wi-Fi signals are capable of passing through walls and other obstacles relatively easily. However, in reality, some walls are thicker or use reinforced concrete and may block some of the signals. Materials such as drywall, plywood, other kinds of wood and glass can be easily penetrated by wireless signals.
