How to Set Up an eero Mesh WiFi Network

Introduction

If you have weak spots in your WiFi signal, making gaming or streaming anywhere in your house impossible, you can get an Eero Mesh Wi-Fi Network. You can purchase just the Pro router or a pack that comes with multiple Eero Pro's or Eero Beacons. The beacons are used to extend the Wi-Fi "mesh" throughout your home, while the Pro's add Ethernet ports as well as extend your Wi-Fi.
Setup is simple. Just install the app and plug in your new router.
Tools You'll Need:
  • A mobile device such as an Android phone or an iPad.
  • Your Modem.
  • An Ethernet cable.
Before You Begin:
You must have the Eero app installed.
