Hard wired connection
Hello all. I've using Eeros for 4 months now and love the WIFI it's given our house. I've run into the same problem now in the past 2 months that I hope someone can help me out with. I've got a hard wired connection from the Eero to a 24 port switch. I have about 5 devices that I have static IP addresses (I've not set these up through reservations, but on the devices themselves). Back in December, I woke up one more to find all hardwired devices would not connect to the internet (and were offline) while the WIFI was perfect. After much frustration, I isolated this to a faulty ethernet cable. By unplugging this cable, everything was restored immediately.
Last night, this happened again where WIFI had internet access while all hardwired devices were no longer on the network. I thought that I had a project to do today to isolate the next wire by plugging / unplugging every wire until things came back online. Just 20 minutes ago, however, every hardwired device was assigned an IP address and starting working again. How can I ensure this does not happen again and what is causing this?
