802.1Q VLAN Trunking

In addition to the ability to add multiple SSIDs and assign VLANs to each, 802.1Q trunking for these vlans would be required to allow the EERO to tag traffic that is being sent out.

  • +1 Also going to chime in here to request this crucial feature. Having the capability to have multiple SSIDs (in addition to the guest network isolated network) bridged to VLANs across a 802.1q trunk would bring this platform a lot closer to comparable enterprise grade systems. Deploying a new system this evening reminded me a lot of the trial of Cisco Meraki equipment I had at work a few years ago.

    I would think that eero has the opportunity to expand their feature set considerably and bring to the table something that would directly compete with Meraki and other similars at a much more economical price. Yes, there would need to be trade-offs in order to keep the system friendly to non-technical home customers. It’s all software though. Perhaps a separate model or operating system that provides more advanced features for the more advanced network topology? Opportunity to attract those currently using Ubiquiti stuff...

  • Just switched to CenturyLink (in Seattle) for their $65 gigabit internet connection - and I'm super-disappointed to learn that my top-of-the-line, 2nd-gen Eero routers don't work with this setup! Eero, it looks like this is an old thread, please reply!

  • I see this still hasn’t happened. I really hope they come out with this. I may have to use my guest network in the interim for now.

  • Has anyone heard any updates as to whether 802.1q is in the pipeline?  especially now in light of Amzn.  Makes sense to have the ability to segment the Ethernet ports. Or even connect to a managed switch.

  • There are so many reasons to segment a network. I’d love to keep all my untrusted IoT toaster whatevers away from my laptops, and keep those away from cameras, and those away from guests, etc. Please add! Tie it to profiles maybe? Any help to segment the broad, flat LAN would be a huge value.

  • Please add this feature. With all of the IOT devices we know have in our home it is a security risk to have them on our primary network.

  • I'm gonna have to chime in as well here.  VLAN tagging via 802.1Q is a pretty important feature.  OpenVPN support is likewise something that'd I'd like to see.  While more SSID's would be great, the former two features are rather important.

    I feel like I am outgrowing my EERO's.  I was already into pfSense when EERO plus came out, so my eero network is really competing on the features that ubiquiti seem to be embracing.  I certainly hope that eero plays some catch up here, as I add IoT devices, I am left hoping nothing untoward is going to happen, I'd like a bit more confidence than that.

  • The lack of response from the staff is disappointing. I just sold my devices and moved to Ubiquiti. More powerful and security focused than eero will ever be. Ubiquiti supports mesh as well.

  • This would allow us to secure the IoT devices that keep showing up at home.  would prevent many of us I am sure from purchasing a competing product as there are a few who seem to understand.  I love my eero and don't want to give it up but this is becoming a bigger hole in our houses for sure.

  • +1 for VLAN and multiple SSIDs, please!

    This quote from the recent Eero-Homekit announcement proves the necessity of such features for advanced installers:

    “We believe customers should have not only fast, reliable wifi, but a system they can trust that is secure and private,” said Nick Weaver, eero CEO and Co-Founder. “We are continuing to deliver on that promise today with support for HomeKit. We’re committed to an open, secure, and private smart home and firmly believe customers should be able to use the smart home products they enjoy most, whether they work with Alexa, Amazon Wi-Fi Simple Setup, Apple HomeKit or all of the above.”
