Need help with topology
I have a pre wired home with cat6 and 2 eero pro's POE attached at home. I'm trying to get both to work through wired.
Currently, my setup is Spectrum Modem => TP LINK Router => `8 port unmanaged POE gigabit switch => 2 Eero Pro's.
As I understand, the reason why I can't backhaul the both together is because I need to get a 3rd Eero router and replace TP Link Router with EERO router?
Anyone that's going to see this or have same issue. All was resolved once modem was plugged directly into Eero and then from Eero to Switch.
I am having a similar issue. My setup is metronet 1gb fiber > Pro 6E as gateway > unmanaged switch with 8/1gb PoE ports > Ethernet wired to each level of my home. Eero poe 6 upstairs shows as wired at 1Gbps, eero poe 6 showing as wireless for some reason.
The setup is exactly the same for both poe 6 units and are using neighboring ports on the switch. I’m stumped as to why one shows as wired and the other only as wireless? HELP!

When you are saying "Eero PoE 6 Upstairs..." do you actually mean the newest Eero model Eero Poe 6? (The PoE models do NOT look like your gateway. See attached).
If so you may have to contact Eero support as it may be a glitch. Is it running the latest firmware?
Those models can work in wireless or wired mode.
- Bring the APs over to your network panel and try another known working cat5e/cat6 shorter cable to test.
- Maybe you have bad termination pins (Did you use a cable tester?)
- Are you using crappy Copper-Clad-Aluminum bulk cable or Pure Copper Cable?
- Is your PoE Switch supplying enough power to the APs?
- You can use another Eero's AC Adapter and plug it into the Eero PoE model to test your ethernet cable to rule out Switch power issues.
