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.

  • 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

    • davidandrew  if that question is for me, the Eero 6 Pro creates a guest network and second SSID, however, all connections on that SSID only route out to internet, you cannot see or interact with other devices also connected to guest wifi.  That is a security feature of the Eero. It is different that having a second vlan which is what I thought it would be.

    • VirtualWatts sorry, my vague (and useless) comment was just questioning the Ring Developers "Why Not?" enable this feature. This is supposed to be a top quality consumer network, but at times it seems dumbed down to the least common denominator. Give more sophisticated users a reason not to go somewhere else. It's fine if the options are buried somewhere relatively inaccessible, we'll figure it out. Eero doesn't need to make it more complicated for the people who just want a simple network and simple user experience. 

  • 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.

    • maxwlang did you leave entirely? No Eero router or AP's? or were you already using a different router with the Eero's in bridge mode?

      VirtualWatts I started using them on their own, then I moved to pfsense and bridge mode because I upgraded my internal network to 10 gigabit fiber
