Feature Request: Add support for PPPoE
many ISPs, including CenturyLink require PPPoE. Without this support, eero cannot be used as a router and only as a bridge.
Thanks for submitting this feature request! We've heard interest in PPPoE support a bit before the community came about, so it'll be great to have any discussion/interest taking place here as well.
Strong +1 for this feature. Also on CenturyLink 1Gbit fiber, and they require both PPPoE and VLAN tagging functionality in the router.
Another +1 here. DSL connection mandatory double NAT is not ideal.
+1 for me too. BIzarre that eero doesn't offer this already. Because of this limitation, I've been stuck on bridge mode since I started using eero. (Eneko, if you don't want to doubt NAT, you can use in bridge mode but that's not ideal either,,,)
Please please please. This is basic router stuff!
Any chance someone from eero could let us know if this is now being worked on? Any update would be appreciated.
I agree -- we've had configuration problems with our CenturyLink modem/router and using it in transparent bridge mode with my old router helped a lot. I'd like to be able to do this with my eero devices.
Well shame on me for spending $500 on a set of Eero's without googling "CenturyLink Eero bridge". If it's true Eero didn't bother with supporting PPP - an extremely common protocol used by extremely large ISPs, then these now have to go back.
It never occurred to me that these wouldn't support a feature every other router I've owned or seen does!
I bought these after hearing how 'advanced' and simple they are. I want to use the management features the app offers and the great WiFi mesh, but I've spent a lot of money wiring my home with Cat6, and buying Gigabit Internet service. I don't want to now worry about poor internet and problems from sloppy NAT & DHCP handling with 2 routers - nor give up the features I just overpaid for.
I've now wasted hours to this effort because eero hid behind their whole "we're so easy" persona without divulging their weaknesses in any tech specs. Feels like another example of Bay Area single-mindedness... our ISP's don't use PPPoE so why would we support something like that?
Shocking and disappointing eero. farewell.
I guess I should have picked Google WiFi.
Recently switched from Comcast to CenturyLink Fiber and I'm sad that I can't use my eero as my router now. Please add PPPoE and VLAN IDs!
