Frequently asked questions
How does mesh WiFi work?
A mesh network is a WiFi system that uses multiple access points to provide your home with fast, reliable coverage on a single network.
What’s the difference between traditional and mesh networks?
For a traditional router, the most common way to extend a network’s coverage is to use a range extender. However, extenders rely on a single radio to both receive and transmit information. Think of it like a walkie-talkie — you can either listen or speak, but not both at once. Since data only has one path in or out, these extenders end up cutting bandwidth in half. Connecting more and more devices — phones, tablets, laptops, etc. — puts additional stress on that single radio, further affecting performance. Only a single range extender can be added to a router in any given direction. If your router’s located in a far corner of your home, it’s not possible to add multiple range extenders in a row to provide coverage to the other side.
How does a mesh network work?
A mesh network works by placing multiple wireless access points strategically throughout a space, so you and your devices are always close to one. It’s essentially like having multiple routers throughout your home, all working together to bring WiFi to every corner. You can add as many wireless access points as you need, and in any order. And, unlike a single router and a range extender that only transmit data in one direction, eeros allow data to make multiple “hops” to travel throughout your home.

With our Whole home WiFi powered by eero, the set up is easy. Simply download the eero
app before your technician arrives. eero devices plug into the modem in your home. The app will help determine where to place the eero devices within your home to get the ideal connection based on your home’s layout.
How many Whole Home WiFi devices do I need?
Every home is unique, and Whole Home WiFi powered by eero was designed to be flexible so that it can be a fit for any home. Generally, we recommend the number of eeros needed based on the number of bedrooms and/or floors in a home.
- Apartments and Small homes: Since 1-2 eeros are recommended per floor, in these home settings, a great fit would be up to 2 eeros.
- Most homes: If you have a home that has two or more floors, you will likely see best results from 2 or more eeros to deliver the best-connected home experience.
- Larger homes: If you have a larger home, meaning more than three floors, you may benefit most from 3 or more eeros, depending on square footage. Additional eeros are available to rent from Astound.
