Bridge Mode or Access Point? What's the difference? Cascade??

So currently I have the R7000 connected in AP mode, and all my devices connect to it and I have turned WiFi off on the NVG589. I also have the EX6100 connected and its piggybacking the WiFi off the R7000. The issue I'm having is that I'm getting slow service connecting through the R7000 (20 mbs, vs the 45mbps. I was getting around 40 mbps connecting to NVG589). This happens when connecting to both the R7000 and the EX6100.

I was looking at the option of connecting the R7000 in bridge mode and see if that would help. But, from my understanding if you are in bridge mode, then the R7000 does not send out WiFi (or extend the network wirelessly, the only advantage is that you can extend things through LAN (wired)) Is that correct? I need something to extend the WiFi as well throughout the house. I can also use the EX6100 but I don't think that is enough for the whole house.
