Reboot scheduler for eero system
However the device or system functions normally, it is a recommended practice by the device manufacturers and software vendors, advise their users to power cycle it in order to clean up its current memory, bring back the efficiency of the functions running in, clogged connections or other such performance affecting factors being run in those devices. I came across this feature in other routers and firewalls as well. This feature is currently not provided by eero system. So eero should consider providing this reboot scheduler for its system in order to bring back its devices to top performance notch by this reboot.
Hi vpadmasm —
Thanks for your feature request! While this has been a common suggested practice in the past, eero won't require you to perform reboots to maintain the expected performance of your network. When a software update is available for your network, your system will reboot at this time.
Hope this feature come soon, I will schedule it 📆 between 3-5am ⏰everyday.
I'm in the same boat as everyone here, way too often I find myself having to restart the Eero for stuff to work again.
Agree. Eero seems to be oblivious to how other devices are performing on its network. It may be self-healing and doing fine, but the reality is that I periodically need to go into Advanced settings and perform Restart network. To the end-user, "self-healing" implies that the network controller monitors the performance of everything on the network and fixes issues to optimize performance when needed. But that's not what's happening. I had to restart the network just last night because local device performance (i.e., not reliant on Internet connectivity, just WiFi), was starting to lag. A WeMo switch fell off the network and I couldn't even re-add it until after a restart. So Eero either needs to build-in better more inclusive network performance monitoring, or just give us a damned restart scheduler.
Honestly, this is becoming a trigger point for me. Whatever silliness has been put in place for "self-healing" is OBVIOUSLY not working. Eero is most of the time great, much better than many other options but I can't have my video calls be frozen at the worst possible time.
I am also having issues with needing to reboot about every week, but it was every day. When all 3 of my boys were home playing online and 3 tv's streaming at the same time the latency got to be so bad it was unusable until we rebooted the router. We still had enough bandwidth. But the web latency was 120ms or greater. A reboot worked to correct the problem each time. I would prefer to do this inside the router and not have to reboot it with a raspberry pi outlet relay.
hmmm. so it did not need the 4 reboots last month to correct a latency issues.
how does your self healing detect the latency issues.
yes the reboot corrected the problem.
is there a way to initiate that without a reboot?
Seems to me that we have discussed this issue several times the amount of time that such a simple feature would take to implement.
