Ok I see what you are saying but there is probably a bit more to it, found a few threads about it.

https://support.google.com/wifi/thread/523622?hl=en

End of the day complaining about speeds I am getting is probably a bit rich anyway given most people won't have anywhere near that.

 

Not sure if everything you read on the internet is correct though?

 

 

 

Particularly that poster commenting on locations of servers, sounds unlikely that they are 100% in the know on what's going on with the device...

Well this thread is also on the internet......

But yeah after reading a few more threads I get the impression that you won't see more than what I'm getting via the Google app so I'm not that worried about it but thanks for your help.

There's probably a couple of things you can do really.

 

1) Move the Google AP into the garage and run a short cable between it and the router and test again - to rule out your cabling

 

2) Plug a client into the ethernet port the Google AP, if it has one, and run a speedtest from the client

 

But the reality is you'll be lucky to hit that speed with most wifi clients anyway

when the google wifi is doing a speedtest is it testing from the wired AP or with Mesh (wireless) one?

Wired AP, doing the mesh test is a seperate option.
