DNS server

Can you add a DNS server so I don't have to setup an internal DNS machine?

  • eero software release notes suggests that it uses dnsmasq


    dnsmasq supports a DNS service that will resolve local /etc/hosts entries. eero should provide a user interface to create such entries. Why don't they? It seems so simple.

    This could be done explicitly with a host name/address UI and/or implicitly by, say, using the name on a static DHCP lease.

    Every (cheap) ISP router I have ever had has provided a local DNS service that I have used to internally publish the names and addresses of my local machines. It's just mind-boggling why such an expensive eero solution can't do the same - especially when its underlying software (dnsmasq) can easily be configured to do so.

  • I would love to see the ability to add DNS entries or at least have eero automatically map nicknames.  It would also be nice to specify a custom domain.


    For IPv6 support, it's necessary to have some way to resolve the hosts (Windows/Linux and Mac) on our local networks.

  • Please consider providing this functionality. Especially as I am an Eero Plus customer and by enabling Advanced Security I cannot change the DNS server IP provided by DHCP address leases. I understand this is due to the DNS entries being forwarded to zscaler, however we need a good way to serve local DNS entries.

  • Certainly consider providing this.  I assumed it was already there and went to add an entry, and the feature is amiss.  This is a pretty high end device to not have such a low end type of capability.  Please consider this so our 300 dollar router is just as capable as our 30 dollar Netgear!

  • This would be amazing for when my ISP has outages, I will still be able to access home assistent via the dns name and have internal network ssl support.
