Feature Request: DMZ

I would like to be able to add a device or two to the DMZ. We don't have advanced firewall options. Ports are forwarded but not getting results that a DMZ placement would provide. ( It is understood that DMZ placement can be risky and opens up network vulnerability, so is port forwarding and this is already supported)

  • I would like to see this feature enabled as well. Though I feel like they aren't looking here anymore. It's been at least 2 years and they haven't moved from it....

  • I really wish this had more votes. Recently bought the eero but thinking of returning it as I have multiple PS4's and in the past needed to put one in the DMZ to get certain games to work.

  • I need this feature as well.

  • When is this feature going to be road mapped? This is 3 yrs old. Can we get and update?

  • One more vote for a DMZ, please.  Sometimes, you can secure yourself into obscurity.  Please add a DMZ!!

  • Another upvote for a DMZ. 

  • Any chance this is going to even be remotely explored as an option for your devices? Even the cheapest and most basic routing devices have this feature available for security control. A status update more than "that sounds like a great idea, we'll put it on the bottom of our pile of things to do" 4 years ago would be most appreciated. 

  • Another vote here. This router is almost perfect and the DMZ would make it perfect. I know basic users don’t need this but if you hide it really well and put a lot of warning on it, pro users would really appreciate it 

  • I'd also like to see a DMZ feature! No sense in having a product marketed as "Pro" when it doesn't support DMZ. Even if it's under "experimental" so regular users don't access it.

  • I'm amazed that this isn't already a feature. It's very very basic and should most definitely be done!

  • I would love this feature as well !!

  • I need this. Certain legacy game consoles do not like eero's implementation of UPnP.

  • Hello, I see that its been 6 years since this enhancement request.  This is a feature on most modern routers.  Is there any update on this request?
