Installation question (New to Eero)

I just remodeled a house and it gave me the opportunity to run new structured wiring etc. I ran Cat6 to three different locations from my central wiring panel. 

My installation consists of broadband internet using my own modem. Connected to the modem is a TP-Link Router and then I have a TP-Link Switch plugged into the router.

I'm new to Eero and my question is, can I now plug each Cat6 cable that runs to the three different locations into my switch for each Eero and run them in Bridge Mode? The TP-Link would handle all routing, DNS and DHCP etc.

  • Hello Glen_Cove,

    Initially you will need to setup the eeros and your eero account outside of bridge mode. Once everything is setup and you have ran the firmware updates, you can go into Settings -> Advanced -> DHCP & NAT -> select bridge mode. After this is done you can then plug the bridged eeros into the same switch without issues.

    Hope this helps,

  • Thanks James, this is really good news! I wasn't sure it was going to work for me.
