Internet Speed Greatly limited by Eero Router

Hello all,

I recently moved to a new home and got setup with charter spectrum 1 gigabit internet.  Next to the router they gave me, I was getting 800+ mbps consistently.  However, I soon realized that the router was not working in different corners of the house due to being too far from the router, so that brought me to upgrading to a new router with mesh points.  I started with Amplifi which worked, but had lots of dropping issues and the router would only ever get 300+ mbps right next to the router, where as the spectrum one was still getting 800+.  I spent an hour with their support trying every setting change possible, SSID, steering, etc etc. and nothing seemed to help.  


I then figured it was just a setting with their router so I got rid of that and went with eero.  Eero is now also having the same issue, its only getting 400+ mbps when the charter one is still doing 800+.  I've also tried messing with all of the network setting for the eero router as well and nothing seems to push 800+ mbps like the spectrum router, under the same conditions, same computer I'm testing on etc.


If it matters, this is the one I've purchased:

eero - Pro Mesh WiFi System (3 eeros), 2nd Generation - White
