Default Poor Wi-Fi reception

Just curious if anyone else is having Wi-Fi issues. My reception is seriously terrible and just want to see if I should be swapping it for another one or investigating Wi-Fi repeaters in my house.

I have noticed that I get better Wi-Fi signal with the m7 then the m8, I don't get full bars in some places in my house with the m8 that I did with the m7

I just checked with Wi-Fi analyzer abd my signal is literally half what I get on my m7. A few feet from router I have -60db on m8 and -30 on m7

was this a 5GHz network, or a 2.4GHz network? I've been seeing horrible performance on my 5GHz 802.11ac network, but the 2.4GHz network seems ok. I need to steal my wife's m7 (the only other .11ac device I have access to so I can check if it is my m8 or the router. the router works fine at .11n rates with my laptop though.
