Not a “Pro” device, personal data concerns
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
Was excited about a Wi-Fi 6e router at a great price, but with that price comes some very large limitations. Was coming from a Velop Wi-Fi 5 setup prior.
Here are the limitations:
- No browser interface to manage router, must use app
- WPA3 support is beta, is really WPA2/WPA3 not WPA3 Personal
- No ability for advanced network management, can’t configure a MAC address filter, which bands are in use, channels, anything
- No ability to manually configure device prioritization
Here are the privacy concerns:
- By default, your email address and name are used and uploaded to Facebook to be used for targeted advertising not only by Eero, but any advertisers that uses audience targeting. You have to email them with a specific subject line to opt-out
- By default, you are enrolled in a trial of their Secure service, which further uses your personal data
- Your device unique IDs are collected and used for targeting products and services to you. This unique ID allows advertisers to create profiles and link activity across 3rd parties
- Eero collects the unique IDs and MAC addresses of all devices that connect to your network
With an extremely limited ability to manage advanced settings, no ability manage the device from a browser, you can only use the app, no ability to see detailed logging of traffic on your network or what the router actually is doing, limited support for WPA3…you would be better off spending more money and getting a Wi-Fi 6e router that does not obscure it’s management functions and logging and provides finer-grained control over configuration.
This is not really a “Pro” device. If you are a novice and want an inexpensive 6e router and are not concerned about your personal data, then this is not a bad option. If you want more control over your network security and desire more transparency, try a device like Linksys Atlas AXE8400. That is what I am replacing this with.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have unresolved issue with download speed. On 1 gig FIOS connection get only 260 mb download speed

Fast and reliable.
Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.
Very fast speeds, great range, and an easy to use app. So far so good.
The speed will blow you away as long as you have the right set up. We had 1 Gig internet service through our previous provider at had over 40 items connected to our network. It would run well but as soon as we upgraded to fiber optic internet and added the eero Pro 6E, we were at warp speed. If you need to mesh network, this is the place to start. It is the easiest way to start a network by far. You simply sit back and allow the system to do its' own work. You basically have to have a cell phone and the system does the rest. We have this 3 pack and cover a house with 4,500 square feet. The download speeds are 1 gig and the upload speeds are 1 gig. This makes life so much easier with multiple people in the house plus friends all streaming at the same time and playing video games over the internet. Definitely worth the purchase although it is a little pricey. Just watch for coupons from Best Buy to knock 10% off like I did!
It’s pricey. However, Internet/Wi-Fi has now become an essential part of our everyday lives just as gas & water in the home. Wouldn’t you like to stop worrying about buffering, range, and download speed? This is an upgrade from the eero pro mesh system, I had to upgrade because Spectrum upgraded our standard internet service to 300 mbps. Although the other one worked for years, it was being overpowered since it can only take 200 mbps.
I have Ring cameras, multiple 4K smart TVs, Sonos eco system, multiple game consoles, multiple iPads and cell phones, Hue Lights, and many smart home products. It gets the job done without slowing us down. How exciting can internet get? Not much but definitely worth not having to worry about it.
I recommend this system or eero in general (lifestyle) to a family member and friends.
eero set up;
Very easy the first time around, however it did take me a while since I was upgrading an existing eero system. If you are not tech savvy, I 100% recommend having Geek Squad install it before you return it.
I’ve seen a lot of 4 star reviews that leave no cons. Don’t be fooled by the lack of 5 star reviews, this is a 5 star product.
The units are very fast, and if you are within the 50 foot line of sight, you’ll be getting the rated multigigabit speeds “wired” but wireless through a node.
I’ve been using 3 original Eero WiFi 5 units for the past few years and have had no complaints. The customer service is exceptional, and when I picked up a few extra Eero Pro 5 units, they didn’t come with power adapters (i got them pre-owned) and Eero replaced them free of charge.
Unfortunately now, the standard Eero 6 does not have ethernet ports, only the Pro models do. These are fast, and it was easy to “replace” units one by one, including the gateway, slowly upgrading from WiFi 5 to WiFi 6.
We’re now getting 400mbps downlink and when accessing local servers, full gigabit speeds over hardwired mesh.
However, I don’t recommend this over the 6 Pro if you want the Tri band and you don’t have WiFi 6 devices. I purchased it for link aggregation but I’d have much preferred the tri band with 2 5GHz connections rather than this one in that regard. The 6E model has a 2.4/5/6GHz system. I have one device that support that extra 6GHz band and it’s a phone, so it’s not worth the extra for wireless connectivity.
If you are invested in Zigbee and use Alexa, this system supports up to 150 Zigbee or Thread devices, 50 per node. All in all, excellent system. The 2 wireless nodes apart from the gateway both have 16 port switches and i have 0 drops. The performance difference between wired and wired mesh is negligible, and the convenience of not needing to run ethernet cables is excellent.
Great product. Great customer service.
TL;DR; but the Pro or 6 or 6+ if you don’t need 6GHz or certain niche features.
I switched from eero pro (wifi5) to eero Pro 6E (wifi 6e).
I am getting +150 Mbps internet speed by having the latest eero product. I went roughly from 250 Mbps to 400 Mbps. My internet provider is Spectrum, and I pay for a 400 Mbps service.
The reason why I am loyal to eero is for the APP. It looks professional, it is easy to use and it is smooth. I have called customer service two times and they were great and useful.
If you are switching from Wifi 5 to Wifi6, you MUST replace all your eero devices to have access to wifi6 in your house/apartments. Your wifi5 old router can be used as an "extender" but any device connected to it will have wifi5 speed. Eero Beacon is NOT wifi6 compatible.
You might get the same result with the eero pro 6 but Bestbuy had the eero Pro 6E on sale for almost the same price ($10 dollars difference).

For The Money, Best Coverage. One Limit though.
Owned for 3 months when reviewed.
Considering where we are with Wi-Fi 6E these are fantastic.
The one, and ONLY flaw is that they only have 1 2.5GB port per unit. Does this mean anything?
Well in a Mesh Network you want everything to get the same speed when it’s wired. This doesn’t do that. But It’s something I’m willing to overlook since most devices don’t support full Wi-Fi 6E.
It’s a balance of money you want to spend, speed you expect, and coverage. For the money we have fantastic coverage. I would have spent $50 more per node to get 2 2.5GB ports on each node for future proofing.
A:AnswerMy experience is that you will have WiFi signal, but it will be a small fraction of what the AT&T fiber is actually delivering.
Configuration is very much as described. We have 2 Gb+ at the AT&T modem, but 45 Mb download under 100 feet from the router.
Bought a competing system and it delivers far more.
A:AnswerWe are unclear on what is meant by "Classic Mode", that is not a setting on eero. To get gigabit speeds wirelessly these Pro 6E should be able to give those speeds wirelessly, depending on if your device can go that fast of course.
If "Classic" mode means putting the eero into bridge mode, that could, and likely will, reduce the wireless speeds capable on the 5 ghz bands. It should still be pretty good/fast though, just not likely to 1gbps speeds.
A:AnswerThe AX5400 is a marketing term intended to demonstrate the maximum possible speed for all the wireless radios combined. Since these speeds are almost never achieved in real world applications its usefulness is questionable, however the whole wifi market's marketing seems quite attached to it (since it does give an impressive looking number). for 2.4 bands we typically see, in real life situations) speeds from 10 to 200s, 5ghz gives us up to 500 to 600s and we have seen some wireless speeds a bit over 1 Gpbs on the 6ghz band, but 800s is more typical.
