My router's (Asus RT-AC750) download speed drops off as soon as I'm not right next to it.?

My speed next to the router is 50Mbps/50Mbps on both laptop and phone. When I am in a nearby room it's 1Mbps/50Mbps. Upload speed doesn't get affected at all. I've just reset and updated the router (persisting issue).
