Which eeros should I use

I have an eero network set up, but have poor performance.  I have a good number of eero devices, but I'm not sure which ones I should use for the best performance.  My home is a 2 story 1700sq foot home.

I have an eero 6+ as my gateway upstairs at one end of the house.  I have a eero beacon in the kitchen which is almost directly below the eero 6+.  At the other end of of the downstairs room I have an eero, which I use for connecting some wired devices.

Here's the list of equipment I own/have.


Model Number Model Qty
J010011 eero 3
R010001 eero 6+ 1
D010001 eero Beacon 2
B010001 eero Pro 2

    If your house is normal drywall walls, you have WAY too many eero devices in your house, which would explain the poor performance you’re experiencing. Just your one eero 6+ would probably cover your entire house, but if not put one more eero in a different part. Just two eero devices is all you should need and then you won’t be creating so much interference.

    In comparison to you, I have a 4,000 sq/ft residence that I cover with only 3 eeros (I really only need two, but 3 helps get better signal in an upstairs loft).

       Thanks.  Just to be clear, I own all those, but I was using 3.  As of yesterday I'm using 2.  Wondering which two to use of the ones I own.  Thanks again.

    Hi, that's a lot of eero's for your size home. I would use the 6+ as the gateway and then use one of the Pro's elsewhere (maybe both pros) but eliminate all the beacons and  all the regular eero's.
