Wired connection between 2 eero devices

Hi everbody,

I have a questions regarding the possible network topologies.

Is it possible to have the following setup:

(Internet Router) ---Cable--- (eero#1) - - - Wireless - - - (eero#2) ---Cable--- (eero#3)

 

eero#3 is about 100m away in this setup and will not have a wifi connection to one of the other eeros.

In my eero App eero#3 will never show up in this configuration. Is this setup not possible or am I doing something wrong?

 

Best Regards

Florian

  • It's completely possible.  Try another cable between #2 and #3.

  • Hello Florian ,

    Yes this will work. Just keep in mind that unless the Internet Router is in bridge mode, your eero network will be in a double NAT state. eeros can work in double NAT just fine, mine has been in double NAT for a year without any problems at all. However, some devices can have problems if they are connected to a network that is in double NAT. We generally recommend that the Gateway eero be connected to a stand alone modem or a bridged modem router combo to avoid any possibly problems with devices that do have trouble with networks in double NATs.

  • Thanks txgunlover and James for your fast answers.

     

    OK, I indeed have a very bad connection/cable between #2 and #3 but it is not easy to exchange this cable. When i plug in my computer on the other side, I only get a 10mBit connection showing up. Might that be an issue or should the eero be capable of that low bandwidth?

     

    I will check if its possible to switch the mode of my router anyways and will report the result.
