Does Eero 6 have poor range?

Just switched to FF150 with talktalk and they supplied an Eero 6. Before I had been using an old D-link DSL-3782 (also provided by TalkTalk). Both routers are in the same place but it seems like the Eero 6 doesn't reach as far as the older D-Link. Is this as expected since it's smaller, or have I got a dud somehow? The other option is getting a cheap router with antennas sticking out to replace the Eero.
 
Eeros are not a good single unit for range. The strength is in the mesh aspect which TT lack since they only supply one on 150.

You're in luck though. People sell the Eero Pro 6 that are "locked" to TalkTalk on Ebay for super cheap so get 2 of them (likely £80 or so for 2) and you'll be perfect. Pro 6 has slightly better range you could even get away with one.

Were you connecting to the DSL-3782 via the 2.4 GHz radio and the Eero 6 by a 5.0 GHz radio?
