Quick Question: Guest Network via Bridged Mode?

Hi!

I just bought a 3-pack of the new Eero Pro!  My ISP’s router+modem combo box does NOT have the option to bridge itself so I had to bridge my Eeros to avoid a double NAT situation.

I have guests coming over for the holidays and would prefer for them to be on an isolated network.

Does Eero’s Guest Access/Guest Network work well while the Eeros are in a bridge mode configuration?

 

Thanks!

  • No, guest mode won’t work in bridge mode since the eero can’t isolate traffic unless it’s acting as the router.

    • cMoo92 I just tried it.

       

      I put my Eeros into bridge mode, let them restart, and then switched on the guest network and set it up.  I tested some devices on the guest network and they were working fine.  Naturally, I can’t tell if they’re truly isolated from the main network like they should be but their internet access works fine.  So it can be done.

       

      At this point, I’m just waiting on an Eero employee to let me know if this kind of set-up is safe from a network security perspective.  Feedback from other Eero users who do this is also welcome.
