[Amazon.ca] Eero Mesh WiFi 3 Pack - $244

Well the deal is back on again!.

(Don't forget to use Ugo wallet to buy Amazon gift cards for extra 10% off)

I bought these Eeros the last time they were on sale (same price on Black Friday) and I have nothing but positive things to say about the coverage and simplicity of the system.

I'm a bit sad that my Asus RT3200 is just sitting here unplugged now because it doesn't provide me with the coverage that I need in my new house.

If your budget allows I would recommend the new eero 6 instead as it supports wifi 6 wireless AX. You will be more futureproof this way. The original Eero only goes up to wifi 5 or wireless AC

Also on sale - I have it and works great so far !!!

The reviews I’ve read on these are legit and their new system as mentioned above- I would love to rock these but I don’t even know if I could get a decent price for my router in kijiji.

Would you recommend the new eero 6 you posted over the TP series which was on sale for $299.00 last week?

So this is a new type of router or what?

You've lost me ... But I'm in the market
This is "good" right? I'm trying to buy something above average. Poor reception at home and multiple devices need it. We have dead spots

It's bundling itself with the echo dot? I have to run that?
We are already running Google Home, will this be an issue?

Edit: Looks like that just enables voice to the unit, not necessary

Is it true this only goes up to 350mbps? Don't see speeds listed in the description.

If I have a gigabit connection and have these connected with Ethernet (wired backhaul), will my wifi speeds max out at 350?

Friendly reminder that Eero doesn't support PPPoE. Many of us need that in order to log in to our ISP. Just Google it for more info about the trouble you might be heading for.

A mesh system can consist of routers or routers and access points/range extenders

This eero system contains 3 routers to extend area of coverage.

You choose to use your existing router or your internet service providers modem/router with this or use 1 of the eero as a router

Does eero replace my current router?

What's a mesh network?
https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/artic ... h-network-
Mesh networks enable multiple routers to work in unison to deliver hyper-fast, super-stable WiFi. Each device in a mesh network connects to the other devices, rather than each device connecting to your Internet Service Provider. Unlike a typical home network which is built around a centralized hub, a mesh network consists of multiple routers communicating with each other.

Why does this matter? Have you ever noticed that your WiFi signal is stronger in your living room than it is in your bedroom? Or that you can stream videos in your kitchen but can’t even load a webpage in your backyard? The challenge of traditional WiFi networks is that they rely on single routers to broadcast a WiFi signal. This means that your signal is strong when you’re near your router and gets weaker as you move away.

The cool thing about mesh networks is that they enable multiple routers to work as a team. When all your routers can communicate and share information with each other, they can improve three important features of your network: range, speed, and stability.

A mesh network has a greater range and is much faster and stronger than your normal WiFi network. The range of your mesh network can be extended simply by adding nodes. Each node in a mesh network is a device that not only sends and receives data but determines the best path by which to send it. The nodes in a mesh network can automatically reconfigure themselves, using multiple routes to find the most optimal path to the Internet. Shutting down one of the nodes in a mesh network won’t necessarily shut down the entire network, which means the mesh network is much stronger than the centralized architecture of the WiFi in your home today.

While this technology has been used in enterprise networks for years, it has required complicated setups, extensive hardwiring, and the help of professional installers. eero brings mesh networking technology to residential WiFi users, no IT degree required.

I have Cannet cable using the Hitron modem. Any thoughts if that requires PPPoE?

Yes, they say this on their support site.

Does eero support PPPoE?
https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/artic ... ort-PPPoE-

PPPoE stands for Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet and is commonly found in DSL networks. It’s a way to authenticate with the service provider using a username and password to receive internet service. eero does not support PPPoE.


How do I bridge my eeros?
https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/artic ... -my-eeros-

There are a handful of scenarios when bridging your eeros is required:
  • Your provider is AT&T U-Verse, which provides WiFi/DHCP
  • Your provider requires PPPoE
  • Your ISP requires a specific MAC address matching their provided equipment
