Nest Router LAN only running at 10mbps

Community Member

Ive noticed my nest LAN connections have slowed right down in the past week.

Im on a 1000Mbps connection and the speed test in the Home APP returns 600Mbps download

My LAN devices however are only getting 10Mbps download

I have rebooted the Router and devices, swapped out cables etc and it hasnt resolved the issue

Wifi seems to be running normal i get about 175Mbps 

any ideas on how to resolve this?

Hi @theozsnowman

Thanks for posting here in the Wifi Community forum. We'd love to help.

A few questions: what LAN devices are affected? Are their firmwares up-to-date? Were there any recent changes to the devices or network setup? Is there a switch in the network? Please make sure that the Ethernet cable that you are using is either Cat5e or Cat6 and that your LAN devices are updated to the latest firmware. Also, check if there are any changes to the speed test results of the LAN devices when you connect them to your modem for us to further isolate the issue.


Check out this support website to learn more about connecting devices using Ethernet cables.

Keep me posted.
