Multiple ethernet connected eero's in mesh


except the eero gateway, all eero's connected via Wi-Fi. I plugged an Ethernet cable from my network, but the eero still using Wi-Fi.  Is it possible to use multiple eero's node within the mesh with Ethernet connected, like the gateway?

  • Hello,

    The eero system requires only one eero be plugged directly into the internet source. When you have more than one eero connected directly into the internet source you can see odd behavior like the eeros constantly rebooting and swapping the Gateway tag, or a wired eero staying on WiFi.

    Thank you,

  • Does this answer your question?

    Can I connect my eeros with Ethernet?


    I'm just wondering if you need to remove all the eeros (except the gateway) that are connected via WiFi and connect to ethernet and then reinstall them?

  • The entry from the help center sound good. It's exactly what I want to configure.  But just plug in the cable's don't work for me. Issues like James described does not happen. Eero just ignore the connected cable.


    From help center:

    When connecting your eeros via Ethernet, you can either connect all your eeros to your gateway (likely viaan Ethernet Switch), or you connect each eero to one another. 


    As I understand, the eero must connect directly to each other? Like a crossover cable or separate network, not the same switch as the internet source.


    I will give it a try...

  • Thank you for updating us with the outcome.
