Default Phone sucks with wifi wtf

Just moved into a new place. Could barely pick up the wifi upstairs so she put a 2nd router downstairs about 30 ft from my room. And Still.. If I go into my room I barely get a connection but if I stand next to the router I get 50 up 40 down or something like that. Is my phone screwed up or something? This is so annoying.

The only real way to know is to do some testing.
Get another device (preferably another TMO HTC ONE) and test the range connected to the same WiFi.

Also make sure the WiFi units are on different channels to prevent them from interfering with one another.
Download WiFi Analyzer and see what that says.
