I actually subscribed the monthly 50M/bps package, but the initial WiFi router (with 3 big Antennas) can only boost up to 30M/bps. After rounds of checking & investigation, the ISP suspect it was the router problem, as part of the package with the device is still under warranty, I have no choice but to accept another new router(without Athena) that caused the instability. Hmm…!!
To resolve on my current hiccups, I came accross Xiaomi Mi WiFi Amplifier 2, it support 2.4GHz Wireless with speed up to 300Mbps.
It has this function call WiFi roaming, basically you can use the same name as the superior router to achieve WiFi roaming.

To my 2cents, Products from Xiaomi is always reliable and this device is only costing about USD10. Worth to give it a try if you encounter poor WiFi signal.
