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  (originally EERO defaulted to 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?

  • Hello everyone!

    I just purchased the eero Pro 6. It's amazing, but I need access to the GUI. I am not used to operating this way. Is it safe to assume that everyone is used to it now?

  • I can only speak for me and I'm not used to it.  If my smart mobile device dies, It would be nice to connect to the eero via my PC or MAC.
