Forcing wired backhaul vs wireless

I have an Eero pro setup.  For some reason, the backhaul for one of the eeros which is connected to my main Eero is reverting to wireless, even though I have it plugged via a wire.  How can I force a satellite Eero to use wired backhaul vs wireless.

  • If the cable is good, they will always choose wired.  You can't "force" them.  Check your cabling and ports.

  • Hello bickybhogal ,

    This is common when multiple eeros are placed on the same level of the Gateway eero. Check to make sure that you only have one eero in the Gateway position and that all other eeros are downstream of the Gateway.

    Ex. Modem -> Gateway eero -> Unmanaged Switch -> other devices and eeros
