  • Finally getting fiber!
    New ISP in town looks to have a pretty solid set up. 1gig simetrical for $50/m (plus some freebies like 1Password family, malwarebytes, etc.,) which comes with a "Security WiFi system." Which I assume to be a Eero wifi hub, maybe v6 but probably previous gen. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Eero might be the worst company when it comes to refunds for returning items.
    Yeah, but Amazon is the best so by your eeros from Amazon instead of if you think there is a chance that you will be returning them. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • What is the best wifi provider on the west side of Portland?

  • Has anyone tried Mesh wifi with Nuro ONU?
    3rd and the worst option is the Wifi mesh. There's like Eero and other dedicated makers for this. They will have the same problems though, if your phones/pc struggle on the 1st floor, so will the mesh because the backhaul is, well, same wireless. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago

  • Any MetroNet customers using eero Secure or Secure+?
    In both cases, nothing changed - Secure+ functionality was still limited in my eero app, and my account management page still said I wasn't eligible for Secure+. So if MetroNet is the cause of this, that suggests to me that it isn't MetroNet's device blocking it. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago
  • Any MetroNet customers using eero Secure or Secure+?
    I've had eeros and used eero Secure+ for a couple of years with a previous ISP. Three weeks ago, I switched my ISP to MetroNet. Everything was fine and then today I noticed the eero Secure+ options in my eero app were suddenly gone. I logged into my account on and at the portion where it would usually let me manage my eero Secure subscription, instead it says, " Your account is not eligible for eero... - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago

  • eero Gateway advertises unreachable DNS IP on Guest Network
    You can now notice that even on the "isolated" GUEST network, eero actually relays any DNSo53 request to the listed local DNS server ( ) and responds back with proper DNS results. (Try "dig @" on a GUEST network connected devices and you will see on Pi-Hole/AdGuard Home that the request will actually come through the eero node that the GUEST NETWORK device is currently connected to). - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Moving to a new house, never had Mesh before, need some advice...
    I have multiple smart homes. All homes were operating on enterprise grade Ruckus Wireless mesh networks and Sophos XG wired networks. I downgraded the networks in all homes to eero. Now, there are at least 2 eeros in every home in a mesh network. The mesh network may be wired. The mesh network may be wireless. The mesh network may be a combination of the two. In the 2+ years I’ve had eero in the houses,... - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Strong router for big home
    For large homes you are better off with a mesh system (several routers working together). I used Eero for years in my home before upgrading to Ubiquity products for more advanced features. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

  • Need help for a product
    Eero pro 6 systems are on sale right now on and amazon if that helps you make your decision (3 pack is $459 instead of $599). It is a limited time deal. I don't know how much longer eero systems will be on sale as they have been on sale for a few days. You can also get a switch to increase the number of ports. Netgear and TP-Link have good, inexpensive 5 ports switches. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • WAP recommendations for wifi upgrade with preference for open solution preferred
    I know that Eero (Amazon), Nest Wifi (Google) and UniFi (Ubiquiti) all offer solutions in that regard but I'd prefer a solution that isn't "cloud based" if I can avoid it. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

    The literal '' cert with serial ending E9:BF on their website shows validity until April 8th, 2022. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • What's the magic in 6.4? Wireless satellite performance is much better
    I get up to 650Mbps at the remote node in my living room on wifi-6 with the ZenWiFi AX, also with wireless backhaul. The nodes are in exactly the same places for both eero and ZenWiFi AX when I run tests, and same speed test server ( So guess which mesh system I'll be using? - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Different hostname output
    That last one was close to what was actually happening! Digging through the network, I found out an (guess the name) eero device got installed recently in the office. I feel kinda dumb now that I know the reason behind this. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Discussion Thread
    Devices like are generally pretty good. The main issue is that people don't have enough repeaters or they don't configure them correctly to create a good mesh setup. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago

What Happened to Luma Wifi Solution?
Like Luma, you just plug Eero into your modem and the other range extenders or nodes to other standard outlets and you’re good to go. Moreover, it also comes in 3-packs of Eero nodes which can be spaced at least 40 feet apart. There’s also an app that controls everything the mesh WiFi does, including a scheduled WiFi lockdown for visitors and your children.
