    As you might know wireless coverage is affected by physical barriers, material absorption, glass, thicker walls.. You should try to place the unit at the maximal height in order to cover the max. distance. Settings in the router (besides the output power) are not too important to reach the max. coverage.
    In many cases the increase of the output power is negative in terms of snr and reflection wawes. The usage of the proper antenna (see the vertical beam aperture specification) is also a key point, don't be amaze by high db gain in the white paper (look the vertical/horizontal aperture specification for the antenna).
