Hoping the collective brains trust can help with a new problem I've seen appear in the last few weeks.
I use a lot of Zoom for work and as a very connected household, I have always prioritised my laptop to ensure great picture quality. About a week ago, I noticed that I was having real issues with video conferencing.... literally nothing was working and I've been completely stuck.
I ran a speedtest and am getting my usual ~500mbps download speed, but my upload speed is just 0.08mbps.
I tested it on my PS5, and on my phone and they were getting normal upload speeds.
I then remove the Priority Device from the laptop and the upload speed has gone back to the normal 40-50mbps.
I've double checked this on my phone as well and the same thing happened. Fine speeds without Priority Device, but completely kills the upload when I set it as Priority. These screenies were taken 60 seconds apart.
As I said - I've been using Priority Device with no issues for ages now... this started in the last week. Has anybody else run into this problem and if so, anyone got any ideas on how to resolve it?
Unfortunately lots of issues with priority devices and preferred activity with the Google/Nest wifi. Personally if my wife and I both tried to have separate video conferences at the same time at home it manked the whole network with video conferencing turned on in preferred activities. Turned it all off and everything went back to normal.
Nope, I'm afraid not - ran out of time with them and they still really wanted me to do basic troubleshooting steps that I've already done 2-5 times (Power Cycle? Pleeease.....)
. At the moment my options look like 'suck it up till Google fix it' or 'throw more money at it and see if more points helps'
Option 2 is easy so i'll start there. Not hugely confident admittedly but....
