Band Steering appears to slow down my connection.
I have an “up to” TalkTalk 80mbps line and I’ve counted my new eeros via powerline for a wired back haul and to feed my TV, PVR and fire stick.
If I enable band steering my download speed, either wireless, or wired (speed test app on fire stick) drops to about 50mbps.
With it disabled it reaches around 70mbps (+/- 5mbps) which is generally what I got with the powerline before purchasing the eero system.
Enabling WPA3 permanently kills the connection on devices unable to use WPA3, such as the Kaiterra Laser Egg.
I love the latest security options, the only thing really missing for our family is the ability to apply a default profile to new devices and to the guest network. Guest network is completely wasted without this feature, especially with kids and their friends.
Keep up the awesome!
Would be great if you could use Profiles to set devices to stick to a specific connection frequency, such as Nest cams that are just far enough away to constantly fall off of 5Ghz.
I see it has been asked before, but if you could add an option restrict the speed on certain devices. My son has recently bought the new xbox series x and as he is constantly having to download games, the xbox is stealing all of the bandwidth leaving very little for the other 30 devices wanting to connect in my houses
Whenever we leave our house and come back our phones get connected to the 2.4GHz band. I have band steering on but it never returns us to the 5GHz band unless I toggle that setting on/off.
Please fix band steering so that it does this automatically. Or better yet just let me choose the band I want for each device like most decent routers do.
WPA3 unsupported on Apple iPad 2
With WPA3 turned on, have difficulty loading websites like ATT to see bills, accessing bank websites. Not sure why. Have to turn off WiFi and access over air on Samsung Galaxy 10+ phone.
I am unable to connect my infinity touch control thermostat. When looking for wifi it cannot find it. Any help here would be appreciated.
Love your product-
tried to add DNS connectivity feature and caused one of our units to go offline- did manual unplugging and replugging but didn’t fix- turned off DNS feature and that unit was back online. It is not the furthest unit from the one connected to modem and has no issues with software updates.
Anyone else seeing connectivity issues with a MacBook while band steering is turned on? Other devices seem OK.
Love all the features of my eero Pro network but I've come across one issue in particular. I bought a new phone (android) and during setup of the new phone of course it wants to connect to Wi-Fi. It would not connect. After much digging and trial and error, I found that when I turned off the WPA3 feature it connected immediately. After getting my new phone setup and connected, I went back in and turned WPA3 back on. Phone stayed connected and shows it's even connected via WPA3 standards. So, strange that it wouldn't initially connect. My kids then came complaining that their older iPad wouldn't connect. I turned WPA3 off again and the iPad connected straight away. Turned WPA3 back on and their iPad will no longer connect. I'm sure it doesn't have WPA3 capability so does that mean if WPA3 is turned on that it's not backwards compatible with WPA2 or prior standards? If WPA3 is turned on can only WPA3 devices be used in the Wi-Fi network? That would be a shame. Would love to hear back with any suggestions or maybe info of a forthcoming firmware update to resolve this issue?
Secondly, I would greatly appreciate an update that would allow us to connect to a VPN via the router so that the whole network passes thru the VPN instead of only individual configured devices.
Have had my eero Pro network for a couple of years now and absolutely love the product. Hope this feedback will lead to some minor improvements and maybe a new VPN feature router side.
Keep up the good work!
I switched the band steering on and it knocked out all of my Magic Home connections which use the 2.4Ghz band
I have the same issue with 2.4ghz cameras as well. Eero really needs to fix all these issues with the eero 6 I had the original eero and things were fine. I spent almost $1000 for 4 Eeros and now I have nothing but issues. I drop Zoom connection all the time now. Please fix your product. Maybe a Class action would be good.
I recently bought a iPhone 12 Pro Max, I was under the impression that it would be best performing device on my new Eero Pro 6 network. On the contrary, it was the worst performing one . My 4 year old iPhone 7 Plus gets 5 GHZ bandwidth and can get up to 570 Mbps whereas iPhone 12 pro max got stuck with 2.4 GHz and just about 90MBps . Is there a solution to this . I tried Band Steering and had no success
I have had the original eero for years no major issues. Since going to eero 6 I have issues that have never appeared before. The eero team needs to figure it out. I spent almost $1000 on new eeto 6 pros for of them. I have opened 4 support tickets and they are grasping at straws. Eero please fix your issues
The band steering option is a good start. However, pushing everything to 5GHz is not the way to do this. Give us the option to choose which devices we want to connect to 2.5 and 5GHz independently. With all of the IOT devices that are in homes. Some devices won’t function on 5GHz at all. This renders your current “band steering” toggle useless.
