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?

  • 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!!
