Connecting to Eero pro through web interface.
Currently, the mesh network has 3 PROs and 2 beacons setup in BRIDGE MODE;
The TP-LINK router is connected to the modem. A Eero PRO is hardwired to the TP-LINK router; The TP-LINK router also is connected to multipole NETGEAR enterprise gigabit switches which provides the feed for the whole house CAT5 wiring. (House built in 2009, CAT5.. not 5E)
I would like to not put the mesh network into bridgemode. I can remove the TP-LINK router no problem but I will need to be able to configure the primary EERO PRO;
My old TP-LINK router has a lot of port forwarding, a lot of address reservations. I see that you can do this under advanced network settings in the APP but that is massively painful to do on an iPhone.
I did try to login into the router using a computer and web interface; In Chrome I typed in 126.96.36.199 (originally EERO defaulted to 188.8.131.52 which I changed but had also tried before changing). Connection is refused; Where as the TP-LINK router would present me with a login, the EERO just gives me a connection refused web response.
I’ve tried with Firefox browser as well. Being able to configure a router through a web interface is a requirement for me. The app is way too hard to type on and see. What I am doing wrong here?
