Eero Pro 6 Backhaul: I have 3 pros, all wired to switches, the last one on the chain says connected “Wireless” but it is indeed wired.
Same issue here. After the latest update, it doesnt connect to ethernet anymore, it became like a wifi repeater. You also lose a lot of speed since it is not wired connection anymore. I asked for help from Eero. No response so far!
Hi nick. rivait
Make sure you are using the correct topology first. We have an article about topology here: https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000830546-Examples-of-common-network-topologies
Basically in needs to be internet/modem->gateway eero->other hardwired eero
If you go internet/modem->multiple eero, it can cause this issue (as well as other ones).
If you are in the correct topology try swapping the Office and Kitchen eeros around, see if the issue follows the eero (which would show an issue with it) or if it follows the spot (showing topology or cable issue)
Okay, I can definitely try switching the errors around. Right now our setup is:
(all wired with gigabit wiring)
Bell Modem > Basement Eero > Switch > Kitchen Eero > Switch > Office Eero
Awesome; I will try that.
What is weird though; the Mac Mini plugged into the “Office Eero” that says its wireless is getting full 940mbps download, all the time. Which makes me assume the Eero knows it’s wired, or giving a wired speed and the app is just incorrect.
any thoughts on that?
Oh - I meant like
Is the Office Eero causing a slowdown to its wireless clients because it believes it’s connected wirelessly, when in fact it’s wired.
I have a feeling that:
The switch is taking the connection from the office eero instead of the kitchen eero. Because my Kitchen Eero says there’s only 1 Ethernet cable coming from it.
Got it. We’ll try putting the Eero right at the end of that cable, and try with another cable.
Same issue here. I had one of my Eero pro 6E connected as wired, but after a reboot, it shows as wireless with significantly lower speeds, even though it is still connected with an ethernet cable in the same wall socket.
Same problem here after an update
