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.
OK thanks md. I also (I guess like many others) am aiming to isolate my IOT but share single incoming WAN with my main network using VLANs from my managed switch. I have two separate sets of Eero if necessary so I guess if no VLAN support on Eero anytime soon I will just need to do it that way.
Yes, I am sure it will. It is Firebrick 2700. Many thanks for the information.
omg. this is horrible. Getting a firewalla gold soon to give me better visibility/control. But without VLAN support with Eero, that really ties my hands.
My eeros seem to have updated last night to eeroOS 6.3.0 and the release notes include:
Support for Internet uplink VLAN tagging on eero Pro 6 and eero 6
WOW. What brought me here was originally https://community.eero.com/t/q5rnf6/block-devices-from-internet-but-allow-local-lan this topic where I just wanted to block outbound traffic from certain devices. I realized EERO will probably never support any kind of simple user-managed firewalling so I decided to implement my own and place EERO in bridge mode. Now I'm finding this topic which means even if I get a great router upstream from EERO i still won't be able to isolate devices in this way. Kind of infuriating that a "pro" device (and "pro" pricing) has almost zero pro features.
Hello and welcome to 2022. Any updates on this feature request?
Interested as well...Eero, you have a great product and are not cheap. I honestly expected this as a standard feature at the pricepoint.
Can't believe this still hasn't been addressed :(
This would be a great feature for several reasons. I would be happy with even a limited release that allowed 2 VLAN tags.
Some reasons this is needed are:
- Security against vulnerabilities in smart home devices
- Reduce broadcasts and limit multicasting
- Better control of guest devices on the network (like not allowing guests to access your network shares)
- More options for QoS and rate-limiting
- Unlocks downstream firewall features to better manage devices
Every AP in the eero6 price range has this feature already. I bought the "pro" version because I foolishly assumed this was a basic feature of any "pro" AP. I am now sadly regretting not going with Netgear or Linksys. Even worse, this feature request has been sitting with no response for 5 years so it seems like I'm wasting my time asking for this most basic "pro" feature.
I literally made an account on this just to upvote and comment on this issue. I'm getting ready to upgrade to wifi6+ nodes and it is a hard sell without this feature especially when the competitors have it.
Is this even on the roadmap has there been a response from eero/amazon?
Eero if you want to know what it looks like, this is what we want:
Please consider it. I'm trying hard not to move away from Eero, but TP-Link and Ubiquiti are offering this!
I use an ISP that has different VLANs for their Internet and TV Services. Not having multiple VLAN support means that I cant use my PVR. Please implement this Eero!
Ahhh - I see this is repeated in https://community.eero.com/t/q5tpsm/implement-vlan. This is, IMHO, an absolute must as home automation becomes more and more commonplace. I certainly don't want all my wireless devices on the same network. Whilst it is possible to tag the Ethernet port an Eero plugs into, it is a bit of a sledgehammer approach.
Eero should support should include at least four home VLANs each with independant access to the internet. They should be 1) your primary home network, 2) A guest network offered to visitors, 3) your IoT network for modern gadgets that need access to the internet.... Firewall rules should grant them access to the internet only as they can be easy targets for network exploitation and 4) a separate network for your home office providing a secure VLAN used for work from home corporate PCs and printers using their company VPN.
These VLANs should be 802.1q trunked on the inside wired ethernet port allowing you to connect them to a managed switch.
Yes what APNetWiFI said, we have security cameras, TV's, gym equipment, door and gate security, eero guest doesn't work because users cannot connect to gym equipment (casting and audio), vlans would allow segmentation and trunked ability to allow connections
I have just left the Eero ecosystem for Unifi 6 Pro access points since eero continues to neglect this feature. Unifi APs allow up to 4 SSIDs/VLANs per access point, and access points may be used independently, without an investment into all of Unifi.
