Slow wired lan through EERO 6 pro
just had ISP changed in my house
New setup is this - ISP modem - set for 1 gig speed - from modem to EERO 6 pro by way of Cat6 cable - out of EERO 6 pro is cat 6 cable to new dlink 5 port gigabit hub - off hub is 3 wired devices - all connected with Belden CAT 6 cables to gigbit nics on the devices.
Indicators on hub show all connected at gig speed
using a samsung galaxy s22 phone - connected wirelessly to EERO pro 6 and did speed test - was getting 750 mbs
on any of my wired devices - using same speed test - getting 250mbs max.
Looking for suggestions or answers please on how to resolve wired speed issues
thanks in advance
I have the EXACT same problem and same setup. The only way I could get my speed back in my LAN was to put the Eeros in BRIDGE MODE making them a dumb WiFi AP. I then put my cable modem back in to router mode (so it does all the DHCP) and the LAN speed returns as the Eero is no longer being a gateway.
It’s rubbish as I bought the pro due to having gigabit - and Ethernet wise they are pants.
Odd problem. I can only think of a couple of variables you might try playing with:
1. The server you connect to in the speedtest.net app/site is customizable. Make sure you're connecting to the same server to compare apples to apples between the Wi-Fi and wired speed tests. Or just trying different servers in general.
2. Try temporarily eliminating the switch/hub. Make it just modem -> eero -> wired computer.
A couple questions...
What is the model number is on your DLINK 5 port switch?
Have you tested the bandwidth (using Speedtest.net) with only ONE device connected downstream of the 5 port switch? Does it ever give you the full bandwidth?
Do you have any additional Eero's connected downstream off that same 5 port switch? Or do you just have 1 Eero in the home set up as the central router behind your modem?
This sounds like a Ethernet cord problem. Sometimes mine do this but then I unplug it and plug back in. If this doesn’t work, it may be the switch. When you say “hub” are you meaning “switch?”
also, try to run a speed test with a new cable directly plugged into the gateway eero. Then from there add switch and test different devices and cords to figure out problem.
I have run into the same problem, Eero 6 Pro’s wired directly together via what’s is supposedly a 2.5Gbps port utilizing cat7/8 cabling
