No improvement from a much cheaper router

I just bought a new Nighthawk X6S AC3000 Router - I was told it would improve performance of my internet significantly - not only did it not improve but it is slower than before with my much cheaper Belkin router. I need suggestions very quickly or I am taking this back.

Model: R7900|Nighthawk X6 AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi Router

   By whom?  That's where I'd direct my complaint(s).

   Then perhaps you should provide a useful probblem description "very
quickly".  The non-psychics in your audience have no idea what your "my
much cheaper Belkin router" is, how fast it is, how fast/slow the R7900
is, how you meadured those speeds, who your ISP is, what level of
service they provide, what you're using for a modem (or for anything
else), how any of your equipment is connected, the firmware verion of
the R7900, or anything else, really, other than that you seem to be
unhappy.

   Find someone who cares?

What is the modem in front of this router?

 

Just another user.
