Netgear R6300 AC1750 or RT-N66U?

I recently got a R6300 1750AC but already have a barely month old RT-N66U.

Any input on which is better? My RT seems to have trouble with range depending on where I am in my house (it's on the top floor), but has no problem reaching my street way far away. I think it's just my house. I get 60mbps max with Shibby Tomato on the 5ghz band but the range is SO short compared to the 2.4.

Would the R6300 solve my issues? It's BRAND NEW and still in its plastic wrapping because I figure I should keep it wrapped in case someone wanted to buy it (no one has so far, surprisingly). I'd like some solid feedback before tearing open the 6300 and posting up my RT for sale...
