eero speed test with gigabit internet

I recently purchased an eero 2 and have gigabit internet to my house.  When I run a test download from a wired computer, I show that I am getting gigabit download speed, but the eero base and its speed test never shows anything over 500 mbps. The wired workstation is running through a gigabit switch which is connected to the eero so I was wondering why the eero shows that slower speed in its speed test? Thanks!

  • The speed test in the eero app is notorious for being inaccurate for higher speed connections. I’d recommend just ignoring it, especially since you’ve confirmed you get your gigabit speed when doing a speed test on your computer.

  • Yeah, I wasn't experiencing any slowdown so I'll just ignore it.  Thanks!
