Ref router placement and signal strength

I installed this Nighthawk R7000P router along with a Arris 3.0 cable modem in June/2018.  My Dell Desktop PC is connected via Ethernet cable and is located within a couple of feet to the router.  Checking signal strength today my PC is receiving DL 118.57 and UL 7.59.  Sitting within 3 ft of my router the wifi signal strength is DL 48.01 UL 19.01.  Can't figure out the extreme difference in signal strength.  Router is loccated next to an exterior wall and a EPSON PRINTER and a Laptop PC.  I purchased this router in hopes of a strong enough signal strength to be able to install a Ring Security Camera over my garage door located at the opposite end of the house.  I've added several extenders but still not enough upload to work.  Any suggestions would/will be greatly appreciated.
