Feature Request: speed test between eero and client
many times when we are optimizing our internal networks, we want to evaluate impact of changes. Would love an easy way to measure speed and Signal strength between a client and a specific eero node (or if that's too hard, eero mesh system in general).
Hi tmchow —
Thanks for all your posts to the community 😄 I'll be following up on each soon.
With regards to this feature request, is this different than the current feature in the app that shows the connection strength of your client device to the eero it is connected to? To view this, open the eero application, tap on "Number of devices current on the network." When tapping on a device, you'll be able to see the connection strength.
If you are looking for actual speeds, some client devices can show you this information, but guessing this may have more to do with stationary devices like thermostats?
Signal strength bars aren't specific enough. Would love to know the actual absolute value of it rather than a bar.
For speed test, you're right i could do this at Each client but as you've pointed out, some clients can't do this.
Also so I want to know speed between eero and a client, not a client and the internet.Reply
Jeff C. What they are referring to (also something I would like) is the internal network speed between the eero and the devices. My nearly 20 year old D-Link router did that and showed it in the wifi status page. speedtest.net is limited to your internet connection speed while my internal network speed should be much much higher.Reply
Has any progress been made on this front? One of my PCs is hard wired to the gateway eero via a switch. It's internet speed is less than my wirelesses devices. I'd like to be able to troubleshoot where the issue is. To do that I need to test my internal network speeds from device to gateway eero.Reply
