It would be very beneficial to be able to add static routes on the Eero gateway. I have multiple VLAN's for different types of users/workloads which has the SVI on the VLAN. Default route on the VLAN points to the Eero, that's where the trouble starts. Since Eero doesn't have VLAN support it can't route back. Adding static routes on the Eero gateway would fix this issue.
Would love to attach my home work network to the Eeros, but without this, I can't... What a massive miss!
My use case - I have a Ring Alarm Pro which has Eero built in. I can't use it as the primary router in my house because I have another building on my property with a separate subnet/router and that requires a static route. So I'm stuck with the Ring Alarm Pro sitting in bridge mode behind another router, which causes me to lose many useful features (e.g. backup internet for the alarm system). Please add the ability to configure static routes! This is a basic feature.
I just starting using unraid and dockers with a wireguard VPN and discovered i need to create a custom route to fix connectivity to my containers..... let's just say I'm quite let down by this limitation of eero's. =(
I love the mesh technology but I’ve had enough. Switching to Pfsense and putting the eero in bridge mode. Overall router/firewall functionality is abysmal.
I am not sure why the devs have not yet considered this as there are 8 different requests for implementing static/dynamic routes... The implementation of static routes will help a lot people having home labs and use our Eero as the primary router and also for people who need access to their modems (satellite, cable, etc.) to view the status and administer it for troubleshooting purposes.
Below are links for the same request.
every step of the way, EEROs inadequacies seem to get me. I want to isolate my IoT and IP camera traffic from the rest of my LAN. EERO doesn't offer VLANs - OK I will try another approach. I get another router and plug into the EERO, set up a subnet on the new router. I have now have another LAN that I can dedicate to those devices and I can set up rules on the non-EERO router to limit traffic out to the internet. The cheap $30 router I got for the job does all I need, and can route traffic to the main EERO LAN. If I want to pass traffic to something on my subnet, I can't add a static route on my EERO. Now I have to add a bunch of port forwarding rules to the EERO router to get to my subnet. The EEROs were provided with by my ISP. I am at the point of putting them up on EBay and getting another solution that can do more than basic mesh wifi.
Jeff C. Can this be considered?
