Is eero Compatible with Point to Point bridges
Hi, my residence and our adjacent farm has multiple accessory buildings that I'd like to extend my eero network to. I actually have 3 Pro units and just bought 3 Pro6 units. I've been able to successfully make a jump of up to 80' between 2 buildings where two of the older "Pro" units talk to each other weakly but still sufficiently. But there is one "line of sight" jump that is 125' where I just can't make a successful connection no matter how I place the 2 eero Pro 6 units. Before I start looking into the expensive possibility of running underground conduit and pulling cat-5 cables I thought I'd ask, as many people these days have multiple accessory buildings as I do, are there any "eero confirmed" compatible "line of sight" bridge units for longer range communication jumps? I've searched the eero Community postings but am not seeing the information on the question I'm trying to answer.
The point-to-point units at the two links below are very highly rated, and while I realize eero isn't responsible for testing the compatibility for 3rd party hardware, my question is more theoretical, which is, if I hard wire one of these point-to-point bridge units into each of the two eero units I'm trying to have talk with each other, theoretically they should now be able to successfully communicate over a 125' jump via the bridge units as these bridge units are rated for something like 1,250' when each bridge unit is connected to a router unit. I'm not looking for high performance, I'm just trying to get basic wifi out to some of the farm buildings so I can connect a eufy base station that independently controls one or two security cameras but the base station needs to be connected to the wifi network.
Again, this is more a theoretical question about if 2 eero Pro6 mesh routers are able to communicate via a hard-wired point-to-point line of sight bridge extender.

As of the release of eeroOS v6.6.1 and eero App version 6.13.0, eero Pro 6 and eero 6 now support PPPoE. For more information on this feature and how to enable it,

Those should work fine as long as you can hardwire the eero into them.
What I would recommend is setting up all the eero in one building first, get the one you will put in the remote location on the network and working, then add these point to point bridges to the mix.
