Eero Pro Base drops Internet every 24h
My Eero Pro disconnects every 24h almost to the minute. So for the past week between 12:10 and 12:15 my Eero drops the internet connection. I then have to unplug it and plug it back in. The diagnostic tools are no help and say 'everything is ok'. This is a terrible time of day to have the issue as I get kicked off meetings and have to come back.
Are you sure it’s not your internet modem that’s actually messing things up at that time? If you haven’t tried that yet, I’d recommend trying to reboot your modem first instead of your eero and see if that resolves the issue. If it does, and the daily issue persists, then more likely than not it’s your internet connection or modem that is the source of the problem.
OK, I rebooted my router last night at about 6pm. Right on time today at 12:10pm the wifi dropped. I cannot run the diagnostics because of course the wifi is not responding. I've been checking the temp periodically and it remains in the range of 102º to 120ºF (measured with a Fluke 62Max from a range of about 6 inches). If this keeps up I will have to punt on Eero and find a new/different solution. It would be super cool if tech-support actually responded to my request for help on this, but thank you all in the community who've made suggestions.
So many things to consider, but I'd try the basics first.
1.) Possible IP conflict somewhere.
Dup IPs will work for a surprising long time, until they don't. Maybe you hard-coded an IP on a device/gizmo at sometime in the past. Check everything.
2.) Cabling and upstream modem/router port
3.) DHCP leases
Not sure how you are setup, but if you are using bridged mode where DHCP is coming from another source, check th elease times to be sure the IPs are not being re-issued during the day. If teh lease time was set to 1 day vs. 8 as an example.
This also goes for the ISP. Get your IP (i.e. ipchicke or whatsmyip) and see how frequenty it is changing. Could be its jumping at the same time daily you are seeing the issue.
Try plugging the base Eero elswhere. Maybe the powersource is bad. Even running an extension cord fr a day to an alternate source would help.Also, switch the power supplies between Eeros to see if the prob travels w/ the PS.
5.) Bad device causing the issue
Can you turn devices off for a day to remove possible bad devices? Just use your laptop or bare minimum for a 24 hr period. Could be one device is screaming in pain or causing a broadcast situation.
