Adding devices to switch attached to eero causes a disconnect

I am a new eero user and I have a 2 eero setup. The second eero is wireless and I attached a switch so I could hardwire an Apple TV, the Playstation, etc. When I add certain devices (a DTE energy monitor, the DIRECTV box), the eero displays a red light and says its disconnected. At this point I have to unplug the offending device and reboot the eero by removing power and plugging it back in. Is this normal?
