I've had the Nest Wifi Pro for a few months. With Xfinity I pay for 1.2Gb download speeds and testing at the modem get 1+GB, but the best the Nest wifi pro router gets is between 500- 700mb from the built in speed test. Why is it so slow? I've toggled back and forth with IPV6/IPV4 and the rest of the settings. It was much faster with just the previous gen Nest wifi devices. Yes, this is after the supposed update to fix slow speeds.
The Nest Wifi Pro only has 1 gigabyte ethernet port so it will never exceed 1000Mbps.
But it should be more than 500 - 700. I am getting around 900 most of the time which seems to be good.
Do you have some kind of double NAT causing issues?
Thanks for your help here, @RachelGomez123 and @RXShorty.
@RobHughes, @Hybridnotts, I want to follow up if you're still having issues with your internet speed. If yes, please provide me your modem model so we can check if it has a router combo and your Nest Wifi Pro's cast firmware version.
Make sure to disable Preferred Activities and change the DNS setting to 18.104.22.168 on the primary and 22.214.171.124 on the secondary server.
Keep me posted.
I'm sorry for the delayed response. Kindly perform a factory reset on your Google Nest Wifi Pro. If you have two or more devices, switch them and set up your secondary point as the main router. Check to see if you observe any improvements or not.
Let me know how it goes.
