FIOS G3100 Router & Eero Pro 6
I have the G3100 router, with GB connection) and the Eero Pro 6. I also have cable through Fios. I have the Pro 6 directly connected to the router and have turned the wifi off on the router. I tried looking for an option to put the G3100 into bridge mode but I did not see it anywhere when I logged onto the router admin site.
I have the Eero in bridge mode as well. The internet works and all but I would like to be able to take advantage of the Eero secure features (a large part of the reason why I bought them). Is there something I can do to make it work so I have the secure features as well as no issues with my cable or wifi? If not I may just go ahead and return it.
I am not super tech savy so I would appreciate if you can dumb down any responses and/or directions.
Hello labdog98 ,
When an eero is placed in bridge mode you will lose a lot of the features that the eero offers, including access to eero Secure. Take a look at our article about setting eeros up on Verizon FiOS. If you do not have TV through FiOS you can connect the eero up directly to the ONT and bypass the router. The steps for this are in the article.
If you are unable to do that you can give us a call and request a refund for your eero Secure subscription. Below is an article going over the advanced features that are lost when an eero is in bridge mode.
