Netgear Nighthawk AX6 AX4300 Wi-Fi 6 Router

I have a barn about 400' from the house and have run a cat5 cable in conduit from my house to the barn to hook up to another wifi router.  The current modem/router is a Comtrend and my ISP says it will only push the signal about 200' which is why I don't have internet on the second router in the barn.  Does the Netgear Nighthawk AX6 AX4300 Wi-Fi 6 Router have enough power to push the signal 400'?  Would appreciate any information on this.

Cat5e is only rated to 300ft. If you put a switch halfway you could make it.
