Mesh Testing Output - MBPS or Mbps? 1 Recommended Answer 9 Replies 3 Upvotes

When i do a Mesh Test on my Google WiFi, it reports that the mesh speed is 64MBPS but that this is only OK. However 64MBPS equates to 512Mbps which is actually very good. Can you confirm that the output on the mesh test is indeed 64MBPS and not Mbps? i am assuming that the output is in Mbps but this is a typo on the app output when you do a mesh test. If it is a typo it's a fairly fundamental one.

Thanks
Tom

I have done some further testing and i can only assume that the output is in Mbps. Interestingly i am getting higher throughput (approx 120Mbps) via the wireless mesh that WIRED. I am using powerlines but can't seem to get above 65Mbps for some reason. Tried different cables, all Cat5E as i have not Cat6. Also tried different plug sockets (direct) but same results. The only thing i haven't tried yet is bypassing the powerlines and plugging in directly.

Hi Tom Grace, welcome to the Google Wifi User Forum!
 
If by "using powerlines", you mean that you are using a Ethernet over Powerline extender, then be aware that those devices have very definite throughput limits (usually way below the rated connector speeds) and can in some cases cause problems. Also, household wiring can cause them to be slower than their rated speed. Worse case scenario is where the the sockets are on different branches (most houses have 2 branches - usually different sides of the breaker box).
 
Hope this helps!

Hi, thanks very much for your reply. They are powerlines as you describe and yes they can cause issues and be very variable in speed. I did try plugging the pucks in directly into each other and couldn't get higher than 266Mbps which was lower than i would have expected. For now i am just using the Wi-Fi mesh as this seems to be settled at around 155Mbps which is enough for now.

Agreed. It is more of a psychological thing than a performance issue. Going to leave it as Ethernet for now and see how it goes.
