Slow speeds over wifi
I have Comcast gig internet along with 2 eero pros and 3 beacons that plug in. Across the board I'm only pulling 80-100mbs at all wifi points. ( via speed tests ) At the eero pro gateway it says the speed test in the app is 930 on up. Why is the router ( eero pro ) dumbing down the speed?. Ive reset, reboot and I'm using all new cables. I'm also using a brand new netgear docsis 3.1 modem up to 2 gigs.
i have the same setup but get 800+ on the wired connections and around 350-400 on the wifi ones. I'd start by building the network up from the main router. Test that speed on the eero app (930?). Then start adding connections. I found that bad crimps on the ends of the cat5e cables prohibited gig speeds (built into my house). I recrimped a bunch of them. So if you're using those, stop and use plain cat 5e or cat6 cables.
My recommendation is to check each one of them...I had to recrimp all of mine for whatever reason. 100mbps no problem, but 1000mpbs was a different story and all 8 wires had to be crimped perfectly.
