Im in need of a good wifi solution, I have a 3,000 sq ft home and the router is on 1 side of the house and my bedroom is on the other.

Should I get a mesh wifi, or just a router that has maybe a little bit more powerful antenna than the one I currently have. If so what suggestions do you guys have?
