Nest Wifi Pro Slow Wireless Speeds

Community Member


I'm having slow wireless speeds with Nest Pro Wifi, after a couple of days of having it in place.


My ISP provides 1Gb download, and 100Mb upload speeds. When connected by wire to the main router, I get ~800Mbs download and ~100Mbs upload. When connected wirelessly to any of the Nest APs (which are all connected by wired backhaul), I'm only getting ~370Mbs down and ~70Mb up.

The wireless client is an Android phone, connected via 6GHz and WPA-3, and directly next to the AP. I've occurrences where wireless is at least 800Mbs, so isn't a client speed restriction.

Hello JayDeeDaz,

Thanks for reaching out. I'm sorry for this experience. 

A few questions: what's your Internet service provider? Are you using a modem-router combo? Is there a switch on your network?

Please give the steps below a try and observe if there are any improvements in your network speed:

  • Ensure that you are using an undamaged Cat 5e or Cat 6 that’s securely plugged in to your modem and Google Nest Wifi Pro.
  •  Ensure that there is minimal to no interference (concrete, bulletproof glass, metal, mirror, etc.) and that the Wifi points are no more than two rooms apart.
  • Change your DNS servers to on your primary servers and on your secondary servers.
  • Unplug the power from your modem and Google Nest Wifi devices for 2 minutes.
  • If you're using a modem/router combo, set it to bridge mode to avoid double NAT issues.
  • If the issue persists, try factory resetting your network. Take note that this will remove all network data.

Keep me posted.


Hi, I did all of the above. Seems to have been a dodgy device. I returned it.

I'll close this issue
