What's the best mode for our situation??

We live in a trailer in the backyard of the main modem, however we have a super long weather proofed ethernet cable running between that and our netgear nighthawk r7000 router... windows 10 on the laptop and an Xbox one.
What would you say the best setting (router, access point, repeater, bridge....) and other settings would be best??
We've been dinking around with it all day and would really appreciate some advice. It's still super slow, tried changing channels, moving it around a bit, moving antanas, changing settings, qos...
Also we are updated with everything.

Use the R7000 as a router, it will be more powerful than any ISP given consumer modem for routing and wireless purposes.

How Long is super long?

Run a speedtest on a wired PC using this super long cable.

Compare results to what you have at the Modem, they should be about the same.

And another question. In addition to length, what is the Ethernet cable Category printed on the cable jacket? Installation is also critical for attaining rated performance. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_6_cable
