Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
From Eero: Setting up your WiFi system
From Eero: WiFi so good, you'll never think about WiFi again
Control your entire eero network with a free, convenient mobile app.
When you walk to the back bedroom, do you lose your wireless signal? The eero Pro Wi-Fi System provides three powerful mesh routers that work together to cover even a large home with seamless tri-band Wi-Fi.
Installation takes just minutes, and the smartphone app makes managing connected devices simple and intuitive. Regular software updates bring new features, improve performance, and ensure your security is always up to date.
Dual Ethernet ports on each router allow you to directly connect to devices that need a lot of bandwidth — think high-res music players, 4K smart TVs, movie and TV streaming boxes, and video game consoles.

Average Customer Review(s):
I bought this product on recommendation from Crutchfield. I had another product in mind but Kat sold me on the company and ease of set up. It was very easy to set up, the iPhone app does all hard stuff for you. All you need to do is find a spot and plug it in. Oh, I also got more than double the speed I was getting from a Spectrum Cable WiFi set up. We now have plenty of speed to stream live tv and will drop cable tv saving $100 per month. Very happy so far.
Pros: Easy set up, small size, allows me to save money on tv entertainment.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: I work out of my home and now I have the internet I need!
This is one of my favorite tech buys of the last year. I have had the Eero's up and running for about 1 year and it has just WORKED! Have had several Netgear routers over the years and they always have had blind spots and weak signals. Most of the time I would need to reset the old routers about every other month just because. Now with the Eero, that is a thing of the past. No need to reset the system. It is always up and running. The installation was super easy and the app is great to see an update on the system anytime you like. Highly recommended.
Works great. I originally bought a high powered router, worked great, but couldn't get to the basement. A concrete foundation wall likely blocked the signal. But with eero I put the second router above the basement and the basement hurdle in the basement and it works great. The setup couldn't have been easier and the app is really great. It shows the speed coming from the modem so I know what we're starting with. Eero is what the apple extreme with an express as an extender wants to be (or used to be, eero does the same thing just better.
Pros: Easy setup. And it just works
More stability than apple airport extremes

Best Wi-Fi available for tough installation. [ Cris Oct 19, 2018 ]
Lane helped me pick out this equipment. I wanted to get the best system I could afford with the very latest network capability. With the rapid advancement of technology, this eero system should last several years before I have to upgrade again. Thanks, Lane! [ Mallory Jun 16, 2018 ]
