Refer to the point above regarding Wi-Fi Extenders and point below for Speed Tests.
The speed test should only be done when there is only one device (device on which the speed test will be performed) connected in the house. Tests should be done via a physical connection (Ethernet cable) to your computer. You should use http://gttgy.speedtestcustom.com/ to test via a GTT server.

Glossary of Terms
They are simply different frequencies and each has its advantages and disadvantages. The primary differences between the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz wireless frequencies are range and bandwidth. 5GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance, whereas 2.4GHz offers coverage for farther distances, but may perform at slower speeds.
Ethernet cables connect devices together within a local area network, like PCs, routers, and switches.
Mbps means megabits per second. Therefore, it indicates the speed at which data is transferred.
Stabilizers and surge protectors are two similar devices used to help maintain the correct voltage for electrical devices. Stabilizers ensure that the voltage being fed to electrical devices is stable, by adjusting the provided voltage up or down to keep it at the correct levels. Surge protectors protect against electrical surges. When a surge is detected, a surge protector diverts the surge to the ground, preventing it from reaching the connected devices.
These are devices that extend the Wi-Fi coverage.
A device that enables the internet service to be accessed wirelessly.
