Eero router configuration guide
This article explains how to setup and configure your Eero Mesh Router
Configuring your eero
- First you have to download the 'eero home Wi-Fi System' app from either the App Store or the Google Play Store.
- Once you have the app downloaded you will need to create an eero account, fill out your details and click done.
- Once the account has been created, you will need to set up the eero. Click 'Get Started' and then the app will let you know everything you will need to set up the eero. Grab everything listed out of the box and and click start.
- The first step is to unplug your modem (NBN Connection Box) and existing router from the power and then connect your eero to the modem (NBN Connection Box) via the supplied ethernet cable.
- Once the eero has been connected to the modem (NBN Connection Box) you will then need to power up both the eero and the modem (NBN Connection Box). You will need to first ensure that Bluetooth on your phone is turned on. The eero will boot up with a flashing white light which means it is turning on and the eero software is starting. The light should then change to flashing blue, which means that it is now trying to connect to something with Bluetooth. Once the light goes solid blue it means that it has connected to your device via Bluetooth and the app should now detect it.
- Once it's been detected by the app you will need to select where in your house you have positioned it, click next. Then all you will have to do is create a Wi-Fi Network Name and Password.
- Your eero should now be set up and working, the light on your eero should also now be solid white. You will then be able to use the App to monitor your network, set up user profiles (which can be used like parental controls) and change your Wi-Fi network names and passwords if you choose.
Please note if you have purchased an eero from us, it should arrive preconfigured, you will just have to create the account.
