HI - before i spend any money wanted to be sure.
I have upgraded to 1000/115 FTTP connection from a 330/50 connection.
When i speed test from google home i am only getting 555 down but my full upload speed. - if i test from a hard wired laptop i get about the same.
Just dug out the old router that came with my connect and plugged it in and if hard wired i get the full speed.
IS there a limit on the max internet speed the old google wifi pucks can handle - my hard wired machines go back to the main puck and a switch and all my 4 pucks are hardwired -So dont think any of that is causing my issue
Is it time for a upgrade or am i missing a setting or something
When your network is so fast, it makes no sense to have any preferred activities enabled. I'd start by disabling that.
There is also some built in automagic QoS mechanism behind the scenes, so raw benchmark numbers isn't always representative of actual performance. But it's too bad this isn't exposed to us in any way.
There is also a setting to prioritise devices. Make sure no devices are stuck in priority mode.
What could also help is replacing at least the main point with a Nest Wifi router, which has more performant hardware.
I have 1/1gbps and get around 900mbps up and down when speedtesting from a wired device behind my primary. I'm happy with that, even though I might get even more numbers if using something else. But the stability and ease of use that 2x Nest Wifi routers in wireless mesh provide me is worth a lot to me.
Changing main unit involves reseting all units and set them up from scratch.

I'd start by setting up the new main unit, then factory reset it once it has updated itself and rebooted. Just to make sure you are starting fresh.
