Wireless range walls problem

Hello,

Right now I have a very very bad wireless router don't even remember the name, I have problems with connectivity and signal. The problem that I have in my house is that from the place where I have my network stuff to my room I have a couple of walls besides a long distance.

I was planning to buy this router http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml... but I read on internet that to increase the range a dual band could be a better option so I took a look to this: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml....

My questions are:

1. Is it ok the assumption that dual band will give me a better range through walls, besides a better range?
2. Which of the routers that I mentioned is better?
3. Could you suggest me a better router besides the 2 routers that I mentioned above?

Thanks in advance,
RV

5 concrete wall might be to much for any router.

you might have to add a range extender like this one
