static IP assignment for each eero?

I am wondering how I can assign a static IP to each eero device?

I currently have the main eero setup with a static IP, and I have a DHCP lease range starting at .20 .. because I want to reserve the first 20 ips for networking equipment, servers, etc.. but I have yet to figure out how to assign a static ip to an eero, other than the main gateway. I tried setting up a manual ip by using the A mac address on the eero which is the one plugged into the network, but that didnt work either.

Also, maybe unrelated but still concerning: I have all of my eero devices wired in, and they appear wired in on the home page of the app, but when I click into the details of an eero, other than the main gateway one, the connection reads as wireless. There is really nothing I can do to confirm which connection is actually being used, so this is something that concerns me.

  • Hello z1haze ,

    All the eeros work off the Gateway eeros IP address and do not need to be assigned a IP address. You can setup IP Reservations which act as Static IP addresses for devices connected to the eero network.

    The app could just be misreporting. eeros will always choose a good ethernet connection over a wireless connection as long as the other eeros are downstream of the Gateway eero. When you have the time please give our phone support a call or email support@eero.com so we can look into this further for you.

  • Thanks for your reply, but you did not address my question. I am aware that the ip's of the errors work off the gateway eero, everything connected to the network works off the gateway eero..

    Again, to stress this, i want to add an ip reservation to the eero devices themselves, eg if my gateway is 10.0.1.1, i want the other hubs to be 10.0.1.2, 10.0.1.3, etc.. however in my case they are getting assigned via the dhcp (because the eero devices themselves are not available in the list of devices to reserve ip's for)

      z1haze Before eero, when I used Apple AirPort Extreme and AirPort Expresses, I had a setup like what you are talking about -- the main unit was 10.0.0.1, the secondaries were 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3. My DHCP range ran from 10.0.0.101 to 10.0.0.200 and I had reservations set up within that range to group devices. I agree it would be nice to allow this same kind of setup, for those of us who need it.

  • As stated about static IP from the ISP could present problems.   For your network, normally a static IP address would not be needed.
