Freelance IT Project - Setting up Personal Computer (PC) and Wi-Fi

My client from a Nail Shop called me today for a Information Technology (IT) project setup.
Her requirement is to setup an electronic banner. I got them a TV and hook it up to a Computer Stick (HDMI)
Installed Windows 10 Operating System, Installed the VLC media player software
My client also mention that her Wi-Fi signal and speed is also quite bad. She is using a Singtel provided router.
I got a Asus AC-3200 for her replacement router. It is a Gigabit router that support Wireless AC with speed up to 3200Mbps
802.11ac: 1300Mbps 802.11n: (5GHz) 600Mbps (2.4GHz) 450Mbps 802.11a/g: 54Mbps 802.11b: 11Mbps
I than use the WifiInfoView software to do a scan of the surrounding area make sure that the Wi-Fi channels do not conflict
The settings are: 
(5GHz) - 40/80MHz Channel 48/149 Non DFS Channels 
(2.4GHz) - 20MHz Channel 1/11 Non-Overlapping Channel
Client is very satisfied with my service as I got the electronic banner up with a high speed Wi-Fi setup for her shop
