Are 2nd generation eero pros wifi6?

Cannot find the answer to this question anywhere.  

This support document does not mention the 2nd Gen Pro devices: https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/articles/207548466-Are-all-eeros-the-same-

This one also does not contain any reference to wifi protocols: https://support.eero.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002718486-eero-Mesh-WiFi-Product-Comparison

Can someone from eero please post an answer or provide a link that does (as I may have overlooked it). 

Thanks!

  • EMH56 Thanks for posting! The eero Pro model is not wifi 6. The eero Pro 6 is, while the eero Pro 6E uses wifi 6 along with the larger 160Mhz channels.

  • Thanks. Can you please tell me what protocol & mode it does use (or for which it is capable)?

    802.11ac wave2?  (Is that AKA wifi-5?)

    Also - what mode (e.g. 1x1 80 MHz)?

    • EMH56 That information, along with the same information for our other models, and several other details, can be found on eero.com/compare, though to directly answer the question: 802.11a/b/g/n/ac and 2.4 GHz: 2x2 5 GHz Lo: 2x2 5 GHz Hi: 2x2

  • Thanks! Great resource (it had most of what I was seeking when I found the other two aforementioned links)! You've been tremendously helpful. 

    One final question (which was the most important answer I was seeking): What is the maximum link speed for a single connection (I am guessing 574 Mbps?)?

    • EMH56 The answer is a bit tricky. Theoretically, the eero Pro can output speeds up to 867 Mbps on 5 GHz bands, though this is under perfect laboratory conditions. Real world results tend to be more in the 200-600 Mbps range, depending on environmental factors.

  • Perfect! Thanks for this informative exchange.

    I suspect if I were to replace just my gateway with a Pro-6, it would fit seamlessly into my Pro network and get my wifi (when connected to the gateway - which covers most of the house) in the 700-900 Mbps range, correct?
