Ridiculously Terrible Performance - Eero is Garbage!!!
I recently "upgraded" my Frontier FIOS from 300MB to their 2GB offering.
The 2GB service comes with Eero Pro 6Es. We have three across our single-floor home (3000sq/ft).
The maIn Eerro is in the front coat closet, with the two satellites in the master bedroom and guest bedroom. The guest room Eero is the furthest way, but is still less than 60 feet from the front closet.
We had Frontier technicians out 3 times now. We get 2.5GB+ up or down to the Main Eero. The speed to the main Eero has been verified by all three technicians.
The Master Bedroom Satellite Eero is less than 25 feet from the Main, and can barely pull 150MB down or up.
The Guest Bedroom Satellite Eero averages in the mid-20MBs down and under 15MB up!!
All three Eero units have been replaced by Frontier. This had no effect on the wireless mesh performance.
We had better performance from the old 300MB service.
About to dump this crap back in Frontier's lap and get a regular router and a couple quality access points. TP-Link seems to make good products.
We get 2.5GB+ up or down through Frontier FIOS' hardwired connection to the Main Eero.
They're too far. Place them closer together and get the nodes out in the open. Having the main one in a closet is probably doing most of the harm here.
If they are too far apart, and hampered by a couple walls, then they are worthless.Not dotting outlets across the house with Eeros to get this crap to work.
A quality router and a couple access points can out-achieve Eero with no problems.
I solved this seemingly challenging problem. I had 2 Eero Pro 6e's & 2 6+'s and a >1gbps pipe into the house here in the US. And my wifi strength was strong but the wifi performance was pretty crap on some devices and seemingly randomly. It turns out I basically had too many Eero's in my 4 floors home! Apparently over saturation due to these powerful devices were the issue. I have backhauled each eero to the main eero router and still had the issue.
So I removed the 6+'s and only kept the 2 Pro's, one on the bottom floor and one on the top, and I've never had an issue since. Try that and see. If possible, backhaul each eero to the main router, assuming your home is wired that way for more consistent performance. Good luck.
LOL!!..... you put the main Eeero in a closet??!!! You're not the sharpest pencil in the box, are you...yet you're quick to blame everyone else for YOUR STUPIDITY!!....priceless!!!
It’s just straight stupid. Absolute scam. I don’t know much about Wi-Fi but I can proudly say this is the most shit Wi-Fi ever. Absolute joke
