And you're using the RAX200? Didn't know it'd been released yet. 
If you're in a beta program for this, you should be contacting your beta manager. 

 

In the meantime, how are you measuring this? Device, program, dBm, etc. Details are important.

You need to supply specifics. No info, no help, as no one can know what you situation is in terms of ISP speed and your h/w and how connected.

 

First of all, WHAT is the dBm reading? I know what my Andriod phone says it is, but not what yours is?

 

What 'app' are you using? The Desktop Windows program doesn't have Analytics.

 

Lastly, why do you think dBm has anything to do with speed?

 

You might be at the highest speed you can get due to the device and its Network adapter?

Standing right over it with what device? Wireless speeds really come down to what the client device can support. DBm, while maybe interesting, probably is not a good indicator as to what you can expect. Dell PC means nothing without knowing what the wireless adaptor in the Dell can support.
