eero Pro 6 - Enable Wifi 6

How do I know Wifi 6 has been enabled ? I have an iPhone 12Pro which supports wifi 6 but when connected to eero pro 6 mesh I notice Device connection as 5GHz. Is there a specific step required to enable Wifi 6.

  • Hello vijaychaudhari ,

    It is a common misconception that WiFi 6 is 6GHz. WiFi 6 is on the 5GHz bandwidth and is just a different form of protocol used by devices to communicate with each other. There is not a way to identify if your phone is using WiFi 6 outside of running a speed test for most devices and the eero app does not show this either. However, if you are able to get over 500 Mbps, download or upload you're using WiFi 6.
