I have Nest Wifi pro, the latest generation of it and we just got our 1GHz internet connection setup at our new house. I run a speed test on the router and numbers come back looking great. Anytime using laptop, MacBook, iPhone etc.. the speeds are only about 1/4 of what the router says. What's going on and is there is a way to correct this?
All of the devices I'm using are newer models so it shouldn't be a compatibility issue that I'm aware of.
I'm in the same boat, just bought the new Wifi Pro 6E I have gigabit ethernet ATT. My eero had no issues reaching 800-900 mbps on speed tests. The built in tests show I have a high connection speed ranging from 100-800 mbps. But when I use speed test by okla or other speed test not affiliated with google I get 100-200mbps seems like the "fix" was over exaggerated. I am about to return the nest wifi and go back to eero I only wanted to get away from eero because of the long update/reboot times as well as when the power goes out the eero doesn't work until after an hour after the power comes back on. But looks like I will have to live with that considering the nest wifi is cutting my speeds more than just in half.
Thanks for posting — let's see what's going on.
Are you using a modem/router combo from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? How many devices are dropping from the network? Also, do you have any paused devices?
Give these steps a try:
