Accessing EERO Router via PC Web Browser?
I've seen many articles that state you can connect to the EERO router in your home through a web browser. I've done this for decades with previous routers. My network was set up with the router being 192.168.4.1. When I enter that address in the Firefox Browser I get a message that says this client isn't allowed access. I can't figure out how to allow that. Right now I have to control the network via my iPhone app. I'd rather use my PC - Windows 7. Matt See attachment picture for error message.
Any movement with this yet? my provider just sent my these pro 6 things, and i am seriously unimpressed. not only do i now need an additional hub as they only have 2 ports each, but on top of that, there doesn't appear to be any way to manage without an app? still? the engineer setup the 2 they sent, but as they seem to be of such poor rating taht 2 or them cant cover my tiny house they are sending out a third, which when it arrives i will not be able to set up as i don't have an apple of android device? surely this cant be true come on,
None that I am aware of. Although, I will say that while it was definitely a challenge to get these setup and took a whole day because of only being able to use the phone app. I've really not had to go back and "fiddle" with them. They just work, and "much" better than my previous mesh system.
My other system had 4 units that didn't seem to work as well as these 2 units provided by my ISP in my 2600+ sqft 2 story house. I had 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs, now just 2 upstairs which also covers the backyard out by the pool and the front yard as well.
Anything that needs to be managed now is easily done via the app. I recently setup Pi-Hole on my home server and easily redirected DNS over to the Pi-Hole with no issues at all.
with my eero router, how do i get into my tplink cp210 antenna/access point/client along with another tplink c1200 router in another building 1000 feet away to make some reconfiguration changes?
before i had the eero router i had a tplink and though the web interface, i could see it all components and make changes. How do i do this now?
any help would be appreciated.
Ok so to those people saying "oh but you just buy a cheap phone", here's the issue with the current set up process I found the other day. DNS suddenly went weird on all my devices and they couldn't get online. With the exception (for reasons unknown) of 2 of my wired pc's. So I jump on my phone to try and reset or make changes to my Eero network, but I can't. Why? Because in order to make changes your phone needs to have SOME kind of internet connectivity. The problem here is, my mobile phone has very poor signal at home. The idea is that I have my internet to use wifi calling at home. So catch 22. My phone needs the home internet to be able to get online, but my home internet needs my phone to fix it. Your customers NEED a webgui interface to be able to manage their network if their phone is out of action for any reason! The only way I managed to get online was, as my PC didn't have the DNS issue I thankfully had the knowledge, know how and a spare USB wifi adapter to set up a wifi node on my and share the internet to my phone. Not everyone will be in that lucky position.
I haven't had to try it yet, but with my previous routers, I had to be hardwired to the router from my computer browser. This is to prevent outsiders from accessing your router from across the street etc. I just ran a length of Cat 6 cable from my computer to the router and searched for 18.104.22.168
I just got this mess from TDS Fiber and the thing is horrible. None on my devices that require the 2.4 frequency will connect. So my alarm system does not work, my door camera does not work, my indoor camera does not work. My Roku and this unit have a hard time keeping its connection. The installer told me these were shoddy and I would need to get something better to make things work. I was thinking Amazon would have put in the work and created a decent product but I guess they just excel at listening devices.
I've recently been lumbered with this hunk of junk due to a new ISP. I wanted to answer everyone's questions in one so here goes...
They don't allow gateway access because
1. Big tech think you're stupid.
2. They want you to download their app to gather data on you (hence why you need to register).
3. They want to maintain total control of "their" device, even though you paid for it you don't really own it.
4. It's a further global push to an absolute reliance on smartphones and apps.
5. You have to use your smartphone storage space for their sitty little app, do they care, nope. Just keep being a sheep.
They could very easily allow gateway access, they choose instead to not give a fk about what customers want and as with all big companies, and just do what they want to do for the interests of their business end of. I've since cancelled my ISP order and will be going with another company.
Has anyone considered the EERO configuration app must come from the Google Store,
and Google wants your smart phone number?
