Eero Pro 6 Review – A mesh Wi-Fi system worth knowing!


Eero is definitely not well-known compared with any appearance of Netgear and Linksys. Even though the company’s mesh Wi-Fi systems have been available for a couple of years at this point. Now the company is taken by Amazon. So you’ll most likely see the Eero Pro 6 mesh WiFi system name popping up at the top of the list if you’re looking for another mesh system on the web.

Mesh Wi-Fi systems can be both costly and complicated to set up. So the main point with the new Eero Pro 6 is first and best to destroy capital letters. It demands calling the gadgets ‘eero’. Furthermore to give a reasonable and easy-to-use update for people who need to further improve their home Wi-Fi. Also, rather than being ‘Eero Pro 6’ as the name suggests. The Eero 6 is the first model to present the new Wi-Fi 6 technology (otherwise known as 802.11ax).

The most remarkable feature of the Eero Pro 6 mesh WiFi system is simple in that it’s much more affordable than the greater part of its Wi-Fi 6 competitors. Cost is just $279/£279/AU$499 for a three-piece pack that contains an essential switch and two ‘extenders’. These together give a double band Wi-Fi 6 fit for covering homes to 5,000 sqft in size.

Moreover, for smaller homes up to 1500 sq ft, you can simply purchase the Eero pro 6 all alone for £139/US $129/AU $229. It’s just rated as ‘AX1800’. However, that implies 802.11ax wi-fi with a maximum speed of 1800Mbps.

There are a lot of quicker network systems available. Including the tri-band Eero 6 Pro. However, the Eero 6 actually stands apart as being quite possibly the most reasonable mesh system to offer Wi-Fi 6.


Design of Eero Pro 6

The new Eero Pro 6 has a small, unit-like design that measures simply 90mm wide and deep, and 57mm high, so it’s not difficult to set them generally up without occupying an excessive amount of space.

The main router of Eero Pro 6 is referred to as the ‘door’ in the Eero app. It has a USB-C port on the back for its power supply, alongside two Gigabit Ethernet ports for wired network connection.

Simply recall that one of the Ethernet ports should be connected to your current modem or router to use your Internet connection. So you have one Ethernet port available for a wired connection on a PC or games console in Eero Pro 6.

The two ‘extender’ units don’t have Ethernet at all, which is somewhat frustrating. Yet is a reasonable purchase to hold the cost down.

However, that ease of use includes some major disadvantages, and different parts of the application can demonstrate frustratingly limited. The app makes a single network that joins the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz, frequency groups. Keep in mind that Eero Pro 6 helps with keeping the first set-up quite simple. It may also deflect more experienced users who like to have separate networks on those two groups.

Keep in mind that the application hangs extra features right in front of you for parental controls, advertisement blocking, and security. However, these features require an extra membership costing either $2.99 each month ($29.99 each year) or $9.99 each month ($99.00 each year), depending upon which features you need.
