Wired connection between 2 eero devices
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?
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.
