    After much research, I finally bit the bullet and bought the eero Pro WiFi System. I had done a lot of research, and even more waffling, about moving away from my many-years-old Apple Airport Extreme setup. It has served us well but was behind the times, both in technology (even with two Extremes and a couple of Expresses (Expressi?) we had dead spots) and software (which the Airport App could administer updates & restart the base stations, as well as show connections, it couldn't do anything else, really). (FWIW, I went with the Pro (three full eeros) rather than the other options (eero + 2 beacons, eero + 1 beacon, etc.) as I have a two-story house with a lot of walls and distance, and knew this'd offer the best coverage for the size/shape of my home. Incidentally, if you get a "lesser" system and need more, adding more eeros (for more coverage) is quick & simple.) The eero system offered everything I was hoping for from an Apple Airport updated release: a mesh-based wifi setup (no more dead spots) and exemplary software (administerable via iOS app for me; of course there's an Android app as well). It also features a very minimalist design & profile (something I very much liked about the Airport, tall though it was), and looks quite nice wherever placed. Setup was quick after downloading the eero app, and walks you through each step. I don't remember much about it because there wasn't much to it. About 15 minutes after opening the box, I was pretty much done. I did have a hiccup in that my initial speeds after installation were quite slow -- but slow enough for me to realize it was likely a software issue. Sure enough, a software update followed a day later, and my speeds were up to snuff. (I am on Comcast's 150Mbps tier, and I routinely show high volume speeds just above that, with overnight tests showing about 180Mbps.) Parents will like the Profile feature in the app -- I set up a profile for each member of the household, and added their respective devices to it (anything that connects to the eero can be added to the profile; computers, handhelds, game systems, etc.). If someone needs a break (for whatever reason), you can pause their access to the network. There's also a "Guest Access" option (which I've not had call to use yet) to allow someone to temporarily access your network. eero Plus is something I'm investigating next; it's essentially a digital security suite, offering VPN, 1Password (great app!), and anti-virus, ad blocker, ability to create a kid-safe network, etc. It's a $9.99/mo or $99/year service. More info at the eero site. All in all, though a big outlay cost-wise (thanks BestBuy for the 12 mos same as cash option, though!), the whole household is very happy and data is streaming along. No more dead spots, no more slow downs (except those caused by Comcast themselves), and easy administration.

    Stellar router and experience

    Posted

    I recently took a job that deals with sensitive information, so my router that hadn’t been updated in over three years had to go, especially with the VPNFilter malware. I wanted something fast, reliable, secure, and I was also hoping for a beautiful mobile app. eero meets or exceeds all of these marks. I consider myself pretty tech-savvy, but I didn’t want to deal with complex router set-up, including configuring band steering. To steal from Apple, I wanted something that “just works.” I debated for a long time – do I go for the premium-priced eero even though I live in a one-bedroom apartment and don’t really NEED an eero? Do I go for a 1st-gen? Do I get some other ugly router with 20 antennae? Ultimately, based on reviews and recommendations from colleagues, I bit the bullet and purchased a 2nd-gen—I decided with congested apartment living, I wanted the tri-band experience. I figured I can always add more eeros later on when we move to a bigger place, so a single eero wasn’t overkill by THAT much. I regret nothing. The router is FAST. I have a 200 mbps connection, and anywhere in my apartment, I get between 190 and 210 mbps via Wi-Fi, with just the one eero. The router’s already had an update since I got it (I’ve only had it a week). My Google cast connections, which frequently dropped out on my old router, are rock solid – I didn’t even know I was having router issues in this regard before, but things are perfect now. The only thing I don’t like about it is the number of ethernet connections – I did have to buy an inexpensive network switch, because between my Raspberry Pi, NAS, and TV, I needed a few more ports, but that’s a minor quibble. I’ve also reached out to support for a few different things, and they (and their CEO!) have been absolutely superb, exceeding my expectations for customer service. Between this router’s performance, its security, and the overall eero experience (including that great mobile app I mentioned I had hoped for!), you can’t go wrong with an eero (system). Kudos, Nick.

    Simple, Fast, but didn't fit my needs

    I bought this to increase coverage in my home. At $500 bucks it seemed a bit pricey, but I thought why not? I was previously using an Asus 3100. It was very easy to set up, provided decent coverage, not great, and fast speeds (pegging Speedtest at 250 mbps on the bottom level of my home. Speeds dropped to 130 on the second level. Pretty good. Here's why I took it back. Moving the three units around trying to improve signals and coverage was a pain. No matter where I placed them I couldn't get above 30 mps in the Master Bedroom, a room I had no problems with using the Asus. The management app was made for novices who don't want to mess with settings. There's not many options. There's also no support for iPV6 (a deal breaker in today's world) and you have to purchase a professional plan to tweak family restrictions, etc... I mess with settings to open ports, configure stuff, and couldn't. I have a teenager and couldn't put on restrictions the way I could with the Asus unless I paid another 100 a year. And each unit only has 2 wired ports (I have a Netgear Arlo base, WD My Clouds, and a few other things to connect). And one big thing. I have 6 smart tvs, 4 computers, 3 cell phones and 5 Arlo cameras. I was told this could handle all the devices I could throw at it. That was not my experience. I experienced freezes which disappeared when I hooked my old router back up. In the end I took it back and bought an Asus GT-5300. It fits my needs better. Would I recommend it? Yes if you don't mind the $$$, don't need custom configurations, and have good luck out of the box.

    Now Getting Network Throughput I am Paying For

    The eero access points are indeed delivering a solid 60 MPS (which happens to be the network speed I am paying the cable company for). While the setup for eero is simple enough. However, I did need to call tech support. I (and tech support) did advise that when installing the second and third eero, have those devices in the same room as the first eero that is hooked to your modem or cable modem. I live in a single story home that is long (about 80 feet). Routers/extenders proved quite troublesome as the number of devices grew and the type of devices were added (Amazon fire stick [multiple TVs], Wii -- viewing NetFlix, etc.) Buffering or just plain stopping, dropping, and rebooting the router was happening all of the time. Since the installation of the eeros, no buffering and no drops.. The eeros: -->One is a gateway -- connected to your model/cable modem -->The other two are access points -->my eeros are running on 192.168.7.xxx -->This network is where the DHCP addresses are originating My Arris SBG6900ac is issuing DHCP addresses using 192.168.0.xxx. I could have turned this off - but I did not. While an excellent cable modem, the SBG6900ac just did not provide a strong signal in the 'back' bedroom (about 60+ feet away). I was seeing 5, 10, 12 MPS. I cannot understate how disappointing it was to experience the drops / buffering / reboots.... Now with the eeros, multiple streaming devices can run without any sign of a 'blip.' Other devices (ipads, iphones) perform without any 'hitches.' Yes, this eero arrangement is expensive ($465); but I was looking at more powerful routers which would have been (probably) approaching $300 - $400. So, for an 'additional' amount, network signal strength is consistent throughout the house.

    Extended WIFI to a remote guesthouse

    We have a guest house next door and where my husband will have a room for an office/library/soccer viewing sanctuary. Living on a rural road, we only have the option of wifi through a Frontier phone line and didn't want to pay for two lines. The guesthouse is about 200 ft from the main house with a couple of outbuildings in between, we were hoping to find some way to extend the signal, and so far the Eero Tribands have solved the problem. Since the pumphouse is 90 feet from the base, the guys at Best Buy were unsure whether the signal would travel linearly for that distance. I decided to give it a try, with a set of two, that I could return if it didn't work. It took a bit of trial and error and I thought we would need to build a birdhouse with a power source to make it work, one foot seemed to make all the difference. But once the two finally synced, getting to the shop and then the guesthouse with another two units was easy as they are only 50 feet apart. The app installed on my phone lets me control each unit separately, I can see what is logged into each location. While setting up and testing locations, I utilized every device we own, and I forgot to go back and log all them off. I just checked the app and was amazed by how many devices two retired people could have going at once. 4 laptops, 2 cell phones, 2 Tv's, 2 Kindles, and one PC that will be wired. We have a much better wifi signal now, not only in the house, the full distance and in surrounding yard than we did before. The eeros units do get quite warm, and for the price worried how long they will last. At this point, we have invested the equivalent cost of 6 months for a second landline.

    Was great, now unreliable and fees are dumb

    When I first bought this mesh system it worked great and performed the job well, in which I needed it for. A couple months later, Eero offered up this Pro upgrade of its app that manages the wifi network that adds security features THAT SHOULD BE COMPLIMENTARY with purchasing these devices. I should have went with the Google alternative now knowing that this vendor doesn't think out of the box enhanced security is a standard thing to be included with a device that handles our most sensitive information. I've had this for less than a year but coming close to a year soon... My network now drops multiple times a day causing my home security to lose remote monitoring for extended amounts of time, my Nest thermostats go offline as well as my cameras. I've had my lines checked three times and even had two brand new modems installed from Comcast... I'm pretty sure its my Eeros. I can no longer return them now and will likely have to go through the extended manafacturer's warranty if I even have one. I would never buy an EERO product again and should have went with Google or Samsung... stupid me. As an IT Professional I should have known better and did more research.

    Way better than Google WiFi

    Posted

    I previously had Google WiFi in my home and was very happy with the coverage. No drop-offs and great coverage throughout the entire home, including the back-yard (about 2,500 sq ft). I recently upgraded my internet speed from 200 mbps to 400 mbps and that is where the difference between Google WiFi and the 2nd generation EERO really kicks in. With Google WiFi, I got about 65-75 mbps on average with my wireless devices. The wired speed was way faster (consistently over 250 mbps). I switched to EERO and now my wireless speed on average is between 175 and 250 mbps. The third band makes a huge difference and I highly recommend this product for anyone with internet that is greater than 200 mbps. If your internet is slower than that, you are good with Google WiFi or similar products that are much cheaper than EERO. My only complaint is that there are limited number of ethernet ports on each EERO. If you want to hardwire specific devices (eg. I wired my XBOX and getting speeds in excess of 300 mbps), you are limited in the number of devices you can connect. However, the EERO comfortably manages the 20+ devices I have connected. Overall, great product if you are willing to look past the price-point. if the pricing is an issue, Google WiFi is a great, yet slower, alternative.

    Here’s the honest opinion. I’ve tried the majority of the brands out there. I need(ed) a mesh to hit some spots in the house that were irksomely slow . Not dead... just degraded speed due to distance. This did that and it covere it successfully. What I was willing to sacrifice was “a little” speed. This is a 100% Apple house and the latest Timecapsule is so much faster but without the features of this EERO. I cannot dispute that they will be a force to reckon with... in 30 days I’ve already seen features added. But in a heavy streaming house I cannot sacrifice so much speed. 300Mbps eero vs 420Mbps or more download average. Upload always constant. I will miss the features. The spam and ad blocking is good. Features on or off doesn’t really change speed performance. And finally... customer service with EERO... awesome (at least my experience). I’m past my 45 days so awaiting my return verdict. They’ve swapped out for a new unit.. same experience. Also.. my Timecapsule has to traverse the LAN of the eero to get out.. two hops, and the wireless is still faster. So in conclusion, if you need spam and explicitl site blocking, and full coverage, this is great. If speed is priority, view a few others as well.
