2.4 or 5 ghz

It would be nice to be able to see which device is hooked up to which radio, 2.4 or 5 ghz. Is that possible?

  • Hi  WallaceT —

    Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the eero community!

    It isn't possible to see which devices are connected to a specific network. The great thing about eero is that it automatically detects which connection is best for your device, and switches between the 2.4 and 5 ghz channel seamlessly. 

    Seeing this granular of information is a request we've seen in the past, and I'll be happy to share this feedback with our team.

    Thanks again!

    • Jeff C. The great thing about eero is that it automatically detects which connection is best for your device, and switches between the 2.4 and 5 ghz channel seamlessly. 

      This isn't great. This is terrible.  I understand your brand is focused on letting retards use your product and controlling their experience, but you also have those of us who are functional network engineers and IT professionals who got roped into using you because we can't say "no" to our wives who don't know any better.  

      For god sake give me a power user menu that I can only access from a desktop or something, and while you're at it give me more than one ethernet port so I don't have to run a switch. 

    • Thanks for your feedback GarfieldwithIssuez and welcome to the eero Community.

  • On a slightly different note, I would like to ‘fix’ it so that a particular device only connects at 2.4. I feel like that may be possible through a reservation but I’m not sure. The issue is a new Amazon Echo that is capable of connecting at 5 but because of the walls between it and the eero it cuts out intermittently and is extremely annoying. I’d like to set it to ONLY connect at 2.4 but I’m not sure exactly how to do that. Please help.
