New Google Wifi firmware 12871.57.12 bandwidth speed cut in half! 3 Recommended Answers 93 Replies 49 Upvotes

My Google WiFi setup updated to the new firmware 12871.57.12 today and I’ve noticed that my download connection speeds have been cut in half (at best).

I have a 150/15 Mbit/sec connection, I’ve always gotten full speeds and more on my Ookla Speedtest app. My speedtests are now coming in at 50-75 Mbit/sec. It starts off at around 100 Mbit/sec and then stalls to around 50-75 Mbit/sec

Nothing in my setup has changed, mesh connection test comes back as “great”, I’ve reset my modem and restarted my Google wifi network.

Speedtest of the network connection to my home still comes in at 150/15 Mbit/s +

Disappointing as this update was supposed to make things better!

Update: I did a factory reset on my Google WiFi network and the issue still persists

Update 2: I tried changing my setup and I’m able to get full speed once more if I remove the either of the 2 secondary mesh units. It doesn’t matter which one, so it’s not a hardware issue with any one of the pucks, but definitely the mesh has an issue     Once all 3 google wifi pucks are connected

Having the exact same issue. Download speed cut in half. Prior to recent update worked perfectly and got 100 Mbps down and now get 45 Mbps down.  This is ridiculous.

What current speeds are reported from within the Google Wifi app?
Also, try other third-party speed tests, such as speedof.me, fast.com, speakeasy.net.

Google wifi app speed test: 155/16 mb/s
Google wifi app mesh test: all great
Google wifi app device speed test on my current device (iPhone XR - 5 GHz band): 250Mbps+
Speed of me test: 52/18 mb/s

This paints a pretty accurate picture of the fact that it’s not my ISP, it’s nothing to do with the setup distance or device bottlenecks.

This exact issue is happening to me as well. 1/2 speeds suddenly on all mesh points. I spent a ridiculous amount of time frustrated,  resetting and rebooting everything,  until I found that it’s Googles software update causing this and not my system or ISP.
