eero internet speeds are very different than ookla speeds. Why?

EVERY time I run internet speed test on eero, I get 484 Mbps. Wow! Seconds later, I run ookla speedtest.net and the speeds are in the 100-200 Mbps range (or much lower). I don't get it.

  • It is due to when you do a Speedtest on your eero app it is the speeds coming directly from the modem. If you were doing a Speedtest from Ookla and you were doing it over wireless that’s your problem. You would get the speeds showing from the eero app if you were hardwired

  • Thanks for the response. My issue, I think, is the placement of the eero pods and doing an ookla speedtest showing low speeds (less than 100 mbps), even though the eero speedtest is showing very high speeds (400+ mbps) from the same location (like my bedroom). I've moved the pods around, but can't get many "sweet spots". Trial and error, I suppose. Also, eero seems to not show nearby devices consistently. Sometimes, a device is very near an eero pod, but the device shows up connected to a pod on the other side of the house (ranch-style).

  • My problem with this is that when I do a speed test from the app Im getting 980 ish... Mbps download and 200 ish... Mbps upload. Im not sure why its not showing the 500 Mbps upload speeds I should be getting. Alternatively Im showing the actual speeds are correct when doing a speedtest on ookla.
