Eero – A few weeks in

August 16, 2016 at 7:49 pm Leave a comment

I’ve been running with the Eero Wifi system in my home for a few weeks now.  I did have an issue where the IOS app stopped seeing devices as they connected and disconnected from my network.  Ultimately, I seemed to have fixed it, though I’m not entirely sure how.

My troubleshooting basically consisted of disconnecting the switches from each other and the power from all the Eeros, booting up my main Eero and waiting until it was online, then attaching each switch, one at a time, finally adding back the other Eeros.  That’s the basic idea at least.  I ended up taking a few switches out, as I didn’t need them with the improved WiFi coverage.

My network consisted of daisy-chained Ethernet switches…  Not the best design – It would have been better to have a central switch and home-run a CAT5 from each of the rooms to the central switch.

Anyhow, my network was basically like so:

Living Room: Two switches
Bed Room: Two switches
Den: Two switches

LR was linked to BR with a CAT5 cable, and BR was linked to the Den with a CAT5 cable.

Since each room now has a wire attached Eero access point, I took the step of removing a switch from the Bed Room and Den, giving me fewer overall hops.

Anyhow, I think this problem has been fixed now for a little over a week.

Other than that issue, which seems to be resolved now, it’s been pretty great in terms of WiFi coverage.
