Hello, I'm having issue with my desktop PC pulling advertised download speeds through a wired access point with a Nest WiFi Pro 2pk.
I have the main unit connected to my cable modem providing WiFi to the house, and the 2nd unit one room over that has an Ethernet cable running to the PC. In looking at my Google Home app, the network tests at 747mbps on WiFi, in line with my ISP's provided speeds. I've done multiple speed tests from my Pixel 6 on WiFi, and the latest one received a download speed of 532mbps (sitting in the room with the 2nd unit attached to the PC). However, the PC that is connected to the 2nd Nest unit does not pull more than 20mbps on average. There seems to be something severely limiting my download speed on a wired connection, and I'm not sure why. I've tried looking into settings on my PC as well as the Google Home app, but am not sure what I could be looking for.
Windows 11 Home
Motherboard: Gigabyte AX370-Gaming K5
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5800X3D
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3200
I'm in the US near Chicago.
Thanks for any insight!
Hey there JPickles,
Thanks for the reply. A quick question: are you using a modem/router combo from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)?
