Pixel XL issues

Anyone had issues with Pixel XL? Every device I have including other Android devices is fine. Pixel XL connects and works fine for like 5 mins and then offline to near zero throughput for 1 min.

The Pixel XL is fine on other wifi networks.

  • I have a Pixel (not XL) Phone and I have not seen this or had any problems with it on my Eero network. If there's any test I can do or other things I can check for you, please don't hesitate to ask. That sounds really frustrating!

  • Thanks. What build you on? I'm on NDE63L.

    Does yours connect on 5 Ghz? It should be in the wifi settings on that connection. Seems like every issue I've had in the past with Android devices I could cure by forcing them back onto 2.4 Ghz. Can't do that with Eero or Pixel XL.

  • I have a Pixel XL and have not had any problems connecting and remaining connected to the network. My build number is NDE63P.

  • I saw that NDE63P specifically said it fixes wifi issues. But I went to flash it and it's supposedly just the Verizon variant of what I have. 

    I just stuck an Apple Airport Extreme on my network running side by side with Eero, different names, and Pixel is fine with that. So I don't know what the deal is.

  • I can tell you that my Pixel is using the 5 Ghz band but I can't tell you the build number cause I don't know where to find it :(

  • I emailed support. Pixel is fine on every other wifi network I've tried. 2.4 and 5 ghz. All my other devices are fine on the Eero network. So I'm not sure if it's Pixel XL or Eero at this point.

  • It's a known Pixel and Pixel XL wifi card issue (Pixel/Pixel XL internal hardware). It actually has nothing to do with Eero, but may actually be a large batch of defective wifi radios used In the Pixels themselves. Google is working on a patch, but it's not known when it will be released.

  • I guess it's possible. It makes sense. But the same Pixel phone works with Apple Airport on the same network. Works on every single other network. The Eero is the only one I can't stay connected to. I guess I'll just leave the Airport in place for a while just for the Pixel.

  • I have the NDE63V on my Pixel XL eero at 2.0.0 (@susandennis: Settings > About Phone (bottom) > Build number (bottom) ;-)

    No problem connecting to any of my eeros...  

    although Speed test on app after upgrade reports 0.1Mb/10Mbps when it is actually 218Mbps/12Mbps (https://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/6374342)
