One of my 4 eeros is a gateway why?

I have a Gen 2 connected to my DSL and the G2 eero connected to a gig switch. The other two eeros are hard wired to the switch and the 4 is a Beacon.

The two hard wired eeros also have a switch plugged into them.


Not.sure why this one is acting like a gateway

  • Hi  lonestarcanuck

    Is this the eero that is connected directly to your modem? If so, that would make it the gateway eero.

    • Jeff C.  No  my configuration is like this:


      DSL --> Gen2 EERO --> Gig Switch (8 ports) --> eero gen 1 (1) (Gateway)

                                                                               --> eero gen 1 (2)

      so the only two connections to my eero Gen 2 is the DSL modem and the Gig Switch.
