changing to Eero - using same name as old network??
When I switch over to the Eero routers, if I name them the exact same Network name and password as my old network, will all my wireless devices automatically login to the new network?
Hi matt.passey —
Welcome to the eero community! I did this and saw no issues 😉
Jeff C. Thanks for the info! Switching over this evening. :)
I also didn't change my network name or password. Everything connected to my Eeros almost before initial Eero setup completed, which I thought was incredibly cool. I've never had a wifi network work that well before, and makes for a great selling point when recommending Eero to personal friends, Facebook friends, and co-workers. And from the Enterprise point of view, getting the network up and running that fast is incredible.
matt.passey did you get everything up and running OK?
Richard1864 I had all 3 eeros installed and running in 25 mins--most of the time was spent physically plugging them in. 23 devices reconnected automatically. I did reboot the wifi on two of the specific devices themselves, but extremely easy process considering how hard it used to be to switch routers. So far, I love eero!!
I have had nothing but trouble with the eero6. I am beginning to wish I never purchased it. Spent almost 2hrs with tech support try to get it to work. then I gave it the name and password of the system I was replacing and I still have had to enter the password on every device I have connected and I have some things that I can't get to connect. Not happy at all with this.
