Hey children, how you doing?

Yesterday my ISP changed my Motorola SURFboard modem for a Kaon. Now, WiFi signal doesn't reach the kitchen as before.
Weird thing is I have a Linksys AC1900 router that I didn't even touch, same network, location, everything.

Any ideas?

Thanks! :)

Antennas get reoriented? Router rotated? Something get piled on it so it is overheating? Power cycle on the router changed the WIFI channel? There is no obvious explanation ...

I literally didn't do anything with the router. I didn't touch it at all, just unplugged the old modem and changed to the new one. Antennas in the same spot as well as router.
