[Amazon.ca] Eero 6 mesh wifi (3-pack) $319

Stumbled on this as I was looking for the eero 5 for my mom.

I got the eero 5 mesh wifi system (3-pack) last year on sale for $240 and have been really happy with it. The eero 5 covers my 3 story 1900 sq ft house and yard no problem.

Camels show this is the lowest price for the eero 6 3-pack but it's been on sale at this price point a few times already. Not sure if it's hot but in my experience the eero is super reliable.

Same. Bought the 3-pack eero 5 ("cupcake") last year. One on each floor of my ~2000 sq foot house and it's been rock solid. Not a single reboot needed. The app is really good too; it's fun to see which devices are on the network.

Eero is great. Check old threads for lots of info. One thing to keep in mind is that the eero 6 3-pack is actually two extenders that lack any Ethernet ports.

The old eero 5 3-pack is actually three identical node with Ethernet ports which allows for Ethernet back hauling and/or Wireless bridging to other Ethernet devices.

I bring this up because any prospective mesh shoppers should weigh the benefits of wifi 6 and eero 6 vs the loss of these Ethernet ports. One could also buy 3x eero 6 nodes too but at additional cost ($143x3).

I got mine last year as well.
So far it's been a rock solid system. I think I turned it off once or twice to refresh the network.
Excellent signal and software Interface.
I'd definitely recommend 100%.

Can you create separate 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks with these?

They're all the same. There's "ethernet" backhaul. Not 100% sure, you might want to read the specs.

Two of them are beacons without Ethernet ports

Therefore does not support wired back haul

Amazon did cheap out on those eero 6

It's cheaper at Memory Express if you find one in stock near you. $230.

If you're asking about the TP-Link one you quoted, yes they do support wired backhaul. The eero 6 does not.

Depends if you will use Ethernet ports on eero 5 beacons.... and if you will wire them up
Read a bit more and it seems Eero 6 is dual band, only pro is tri-band so I guess I'll be keeping the pros since I don't have Ethernet cables running inside the house....

I believe timbertick was asking about TP-LINK, not Eero 6. Go back and read it.

You can create profile and schedule to pause Internet access for devices assigned to that profile. This is easy to setup and available to all. For content filtering like website block, you need to get the subscription service called Eero Secure.
