Poor wifi range with TPG modem

Level 1a

I recently switched to NBN with TPG from ADSL2 with Telstra. The wifi range from the supplied tp-link modem is so bad as to be unusable in most of the house. It is only suitable right next to the modem. The modem we had from Telstra worked much better. Can I use the Telstra modem with TPG? What would I need to do?
