Stuck on "Looking for Eero devices..." Bluetooth
Looking for some help from the community regarding Eero setup. After replacing my Spectrum modem, my Eero network would not come back online. So, I deleted the network from my Eero app entirely and hard-reset the gateway Eero and unplugged my second Eero. Despite many, many attempts, I cannot get the app to move on past the "Looking for Eero devices..." screen. The Eero light does turn solid blue, indicating a pair but the app never progresses.
Things I've tried:
- I've tried hard-resets, no avail
- I've connected the ethernet from my modem straight into a computer to confirm internet is live and working
- I've tried setting up both Eero's as the gateway, neither moves past the same spot referenced above
- I've tried three different devices with the app, two iPhones and one iPad
- I've tried turning off bluetooth and wifi and waiting
- I've tried deleting and reinstall the Eero app
- I sat on the phone with Eero this weekend for over an hour and they tried to "push" a new network configuration to my Eero, that did not work
I am running out of ideas here. I tried to call Eero today but sat on hold for an hour and had to move on to other things in my schedule. I bought a cheapo Netgear router from best buy to get me through until my Eero's are fixed. But I have to say that for a premium product, my experience has been totally abysmal. I installed Eero's at my parents house before they were purchased by Amazon without issue. So, I thought I'd do the same at my house and bought the 2-pack maybe 3 or 4 months ago now and I am starting to regret my decision.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I just want to get the Eero's back working.
I'm facing the same problem. Removed my devices from another Eero network, performed a hard reset on all devices. Now I'm stuck on the Looking for devices screen even if my Eero Pro light turns solid blue.
Same problem here
I’ve pretty much followed the exact same steps and tried setting up on 2 separate devices. Still no luck! :-(
please let us know if you have any luck in fixing the issue! Thanks!
Exact same issue - any known fix?
Exact same issue. In the UK, using iOS 14.2 no other devices with a cellular service. Hope this isn't an app issue - as there's no web interface to be able to setup.
Hi folks, I found a workaround solution by downloading the eero app on an android phone and then setting up the network. After that I am able to see the network on the iOS app. Definitely seems like an app issue on iOS, most likely after the iOS 14 update. My best guess is that it’s most likely something to do with Bluetooth security protocol in iOS 14. I have requested the technical support team to escalate this issue to senior engineers to further investigate. Let me know if the workaround works for you guys! Good luck!
Has this been resolved yet? I moved house, factory reset my devices and Im now experiencing the same issue. iOS with no access to a ‘droid device.
Has there been any resolution here? I made the mistake of ordering the Eero 3 pack. I only have iPhones. If no resolution I guess I have to pack up and send back.
Thought I would add to this chain as well-same issue on my end with a brand new eero pro 6. Luckily I found an old iPhone 6 that hadn’t been updated and I could complete everything.
Same problem here. No android phones in the house. Complete insanity/BS that this is happening. I’ve been working on this for an hour and have been on hold for ages. Screw this
I just had this problem as well. I only have iOS devices, so I decided to see if that was the problem. SO, after hours of attempts, I decided to download an Android Emulator (BlueStack was my third attempt but by far the best choice I found).
Once I downloaded the Emulator, I was able to get the Eero app there and go through the process.... and it worked! So for me, the issue was definitely the iOS apps. Good luck....
Same problem. Suck as “looking for eero devices” when the color is solid blue on the device meaning it found it. The app does not progress further. I emailed the support team couple of days ago, they didn’t respond. This is so frustrating to the point that I want to give up on this and return the items. Please help
Kora (eero Support) please look into this. Dealt with a distraught family member running into this exact situation tonight after being advised by support to hard reset their unit. They have an iphone SE that's updated and same with the app.
Not being able to actually setup the unit without a spare router on hand is a HUGE problem.
