Does the eero gateway put out a wifi signal?

I have a couple of wifi enabled devices right by the eero gateway.  But the devices seem to connect to a different eero device that is much further away.  Why is that?  Does the eero gateway device not actually put out a wifi signal?

  • Devices can connect to the gateway eero as well. It’s possible these other devices are physically to close to the gateway. But regardless, it’s up to the client device to choose which eero to connect to—eero units can’t control the client devices.

  • Thank you.  Interesting that a device can actually be considered "too close" to the gateway eero to receive a Wifi signal.  We have a printer in the same room as the gateway eero but I noticed it was always picking up its eero wifi signal from an eero device in another room.
