Want a honest review of the new eero wifi gear? read on


We moved to Rexburg Idaho, much larger place on more than a acre of land, multiple building, etc. we are now up to 6 eeros in our network still great coverage covering our entire property.. I love our eero network!!!

Okay so I have a in house wifi network that had dark spots (poor data through put ). So I started reading up on new wifi technology I found EERO online and it looked pretty cool tech. So I bought a starter kit from Amazon ( 3 EERO's in a box) plus a single EERO just in case! The packaging is very very nicely done. you have to download the app for iOS or Android to setup your network. So out of the box they come, plugged in the one that said start here, disconnected my secureWiFI router from my FIOS connection (ethernet right from the side of the house), plug in the ethernet cable to the EERO from the access box on the side of the house, an ethernet cable back to my gig ethernet switch. It took about 10 minutes to setup the account and the first EERO, then went to installing the second one about 45 to 50 feet away (a few walls in the way of course). Plugged in the power to the EERO and another ethernet cable into another gig ethernet switch, waited for the blue light on the unit to blink and hit the proceed button in the EERO app on my iPhone 6s Plus and about 5 minutes or less the second unit was configured and working (very slick) went upstairs and plugged in the third EERO and waited for the blinking light and that one was configured as well, EERO says 3 units would cover your average home (nope I needed a fourth unit), so opened up the last box and plugged that unit in our bedroom waited for the blue light to blink and pushed proceed on the iOS app. I reattached all of the wifi and hardwired devices to the new network everything attached quickly except my daughter's iPad mini (not sure why it took like 8 minutes to connect). So the firmware was the earliest release on the software provided, it seems on Friday;s EERO push out updates automatically and updates their devices (that is really nice so you don't have to download software and update the devices manually). We have been using it for about 3 weeks now and it passes data very quickly ( I have an 100MB FIOS pipe) almost at wireline speed. I am planning to hardwire the last 2 EERO's to my network this weekend, since that was a recommend configuration on the web site. Over all I am a happy camper, now the cost is not cheep the units are about $100.00 each but overall they are worth the cost.
