Hi, just got Fiber internet. I'm getting 1gb up and down on the speed test in the app; however, my phone sitting 5 feet from the router is only getting around 120-150mb up and down. I was consistently getting 200+ down when I was in plain cable internet 400mb plan. Is this just a flaw in the Nest? I have my H2D model. Should I upgrade to the Pro or should I try a factory reset?
Interesting. I set my phone to priority and got over 350, so they definitely helped. Still getting close to 1gb down on wired PC but randomly only 200 up. Turning off the priority thing solved that. And with priority turned off on my phone I'm still getting the 350+ speed. Weird.
Thanks for posting — let's see what's going on.
Are you using a modem/router combo from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? How many devices are dropping from the network? Also, do you have any paused devices?
Give these steps a try:
Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for the suggestions. I was actually able to solve the issue by using the Prioritize function in the Google Home app. I made my phone a priority device temporarily then immediately stopped doing so and now my phone is getting around 400 mbps up and down, which I'd consider to be a good wifi speed.
Awesome — glad to hear that your issue is fixed. It looks like we can consider this one complete, so I will lock the thread shortly unless I can help out with anything else.
1. I'm using the Google Nest Wi-Fi system plugged into the Fiber modem provided by my ISP
4. Already off
For the rest, I'll have to wait until everyone in my house is asleep to try but will do and will get back to you. Thanks
