Requires an eero network
eero 6 extenders require an existing eero network. You can add as many eero 6 extenders as you need to maximize coverage throughout your home.
A:AnswerIt does not, I know cause I bought it not knowing and when I got home to plug it into my cable company (spectrum) router it didn't have any cables. Then I read the box and it said "What you'll need... Eero Router etc." haha sooo yeah learned my lesson hope it helps.
A:AnswerYou will want to stay with another Eero device to connect to your existing Eero Pro 6 system. You can add any of them (Eero Pro 6 Router, Eero 6 Router, or Eero 6 Extender) to your existing network, it just depends how you want to connect them. Heck, you can even add one of the older Eero units if you find them cheap enough. You will obviously need a power drop at the new location (even if it is outside), and you could also add an Ethernet drop at that same location (even outside).
If you do choose to run power and Ethernet outside, make sure they are protected from weather and the outdoor elements. Lightning Arrestors and proper grounding are required by law when connecting outdoor antennas, so make sure you follow local ordinances if you go that route. An easier option is to install a device inside your house next to a window or exterior wall and *some* coverage will extend outside. You will have to play with a few locations to see what gives you the coverage that you need.
If you go with a wireless backhaul (not recommended), make sure the new unit is placed close enough to the existing wireless signal as you will need a strong signal between the Eero 6 units in order to provide adequate speeds to the outdoor areas. Also realize that whenever you do a wireless backhaul, that adds one wireless hop and effectively cuts the available bandwidth in half. To further compound that, if you connect one of the new units wirelessly to another unit that is also connected wirelessly, you will effectively have 25% of the bandwidth and speed (i.e. 50% drop of an already 50% drop equals 25%).
A:AnswerWhen I replaced my Eeros Pro with the new one, Eeros Pro 6, I left the Eeros Beacon that I had already installed as my extenders. Nevertheless, for my daughter's Mesh network, which is comprised of two Eeros 6 AX1800, I added two Eeros AX1800 Extenders. Both the Beacons and the Extenders were very easy to setup. Also, through the app, you can contact Customer support. They are very fast to reply.
A:AnswerIf we assume that your internet connection/modem is downstairs you would need at least two eero. One eero would be hardwired into the downstairs modem/internet, and it would create a wireless network. The other eero would be upstairs, wirelessly connected to the first one, and you can hardwire your ethernet into that one.
However, the eero you are citing, the eero 6 extender, don't have an ethernet port. You'll want to get the eero 6 (2 of them) to do this.
A:AnswerThe Eero 6 Router and Eero 6 Pro Router have two (2) Ethernet port on the back of each unit, so they will be able to do either a wired backhaul or a wireless backhaul.
The Eero 6 Extender does NOT have any Ethernet ports, and thus can only be used with a wireless backhaul.
