Quantum router slow and poor range

Using the 5G on my fairly new Quantum router as we speak. 2 bars compared to my Archer C9 as well as my neighbor’s (!) 4 bars. My speed? .81 Down/7.26 Up. I’m paying for 75/75. When I connect to my Archer router? 82.5 up & 79.6 down. What gives Verizon? Thankfully I got the router free with the speed upgrade, but WOW, what a piece of crap. And you charge people $200 for it?

Turn you Archer C9 a wireless access point.

After that login to the Quantum router and disable the wifi.

Just use the archer and if you bought the Quantum just put it away. If rented return it in person to a Fios store near you.

its $150 to purchase or $10 a month to rent.

I Believe you are correct. So having it in AP mode would work as I mentioned.
