R6900 Nighthawk Router Slow

So earlier today I purchased a Nighthawk R6900 Router from Walmart in hopes that my download speed would increase jurastically. However, it didn’t help at all. Now I live in an area where 20 mbps is the best WiFi plan. But am currently getting 5 down and 1 up. Can anyone tell me if I’m doing anything wrong or if there is a way to boost my connection?

Have you tested the speed directly connected to your modem?
