Will Xbox one s controller extend range with Xbox one?

I have a strange set up,, my Xbox one is nowhere near where I sit to watch TV,, The result is the signal drops every couple of minutes. Do you guys think if I was to buy a controller meant for the one S,, sync it to my original Xbox, that the range would be extended?

if received lots other wifi signals, then maybe interference,

what you can do is disable your own 2.4ghz wifi, shield the xbox console, tell your neighbors to switch to 5ghz

Thank you for your reply, i'll definitely look into doing that! What is a good way to shield the Xbox?

Do you know is there any indication that using the new controller with the old system is supposed to extend the range or does it need to be paired with the new box?

the antenna is in the front, one side is the disc drive, the other side is antenna.

just make a brim like a hat to block sunlight, but make it 4 sides, so it only received best signal from the front.

any metal/metal sheet is ok, metal cookie box's cover, food wrap,

you don't have to do all 4 sides at once, try just do the bottom, because i think it looks the best, if problem solved by only blocking one side

this will block a little wifi connect to router as well if using wifi. so don't block all directions if don't have to. try to use 5ghz for internet.
