Question about Controllers

I currently game on a PC and was wondering if I was to get from Microsoft a wireless controller + wireless adapter for Windows 10 would that increase the range of controller? I'm having an issue now where the range on the asus b550 f gaming mobo and a wireless xbox controller is not great. If I just barely move away from the PC the game will try to pause to switch back to keyboard and mouse so I'm stuck now having to use a controller with USB wire. Thanks for your input.

I am using a Xbox One controller with the PC USB dongle and that works really well. I can be easily 10 meters away from my PC without any issues.
You might not even need to get a new controller. The dongle alone should be enough, tho I'm not sure whether you can get that just by itself.

 

Edit: Yup you can get the dongle for around 15-20€.

That should work with any wireless Xbox One controller.

 

Edit2: It's important to note that the dongle I use is directly in sight of my controller. Nothing in between and plugged into the front of my PC.

05Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0)

10Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2

20Gb/s - USB 3.2 Gen 2x2

40Gb/s - USB 4.0, Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4
