Frequently asked questions
How does mesh WiFi work?
The main difference between a mesh network and a WiFi extender is that a mesh network is a WiFi system that uses multiple access points to provide your home with fast, reliable coverage all on a single network. Range or WiFi extenders can expand the reach of your existing wireless network. This enables you to access the Internet when you’re not close enough to your router to receive a good signal. While range extenders can be effective in increasing wireless range, they reduce throughput and create performance issues. Range extenders can cut bandwidth in half because they rely on a single wireless radio to both listen for and broadcast data. This results in a slower connection when you’re receiving a WiFi signal from your range extender and can also impact your connection speeds to your router.
What wireless internet speed is eero capable of?
eeros’ max rated transmit speeds are about 240Mbps at 2.4 GHz and about 600Mbps at 5 GHz. Over a wired connection, the max throughput locally is 1Gbps. Maximum wireless speeds are also dependent on the capabilities of the client device.
It’s important to keep in mind that these are the maximum speeds we’ve seen with eero, but we like to think of WiFi speed more in terms of what you can do with it. eero uses the latest standards to make sure you’re getting the speed you pay for in every corner of every room. It’s that perfect combination of speed and coverage that’s going to let you work, stream, play, or download anywhere in your home.
