A fast and reliable internet is probably one of the necessities today along with food, clothing, and shelter. This is why you see different ISPs offering various promos regarding internet connection, but almost all of them tout having the most reliable and stable one.

This is not a problem if you plan to stay in one room while browsing. But who stays in one room while 9gagging or Redditing?

This is where routers come in. But we guess you already know what happens when your router is the living room while you do most of your internet session in your bedroom.

To create an entirely stable, wireless connection go for wireless mesh network instead. One of the systems that can offer you this is the eero Home WiFi System featuring the TrueMesh network technology.

What’s a wireless mesh network?

HowStuffWorks carefully explains this type of network, but to save you time we’ll give you a rundown of the benefits:

  • It is a truly wireless network. You only need one node to be wired to the Internet modem. The rest is set up and connected wirelessly.
  • It is beneficial for places with Non-Line-of-Sight. NLoS means the wireless signals are blocked by physical objects like your wall for example. The nodes in the mesh network system adjust so they can connect to a clear signal.
  • It is faster. The local packets in a mesh network don’t travel back to the central server. Also, each node in the mesh network acts as a separate router instead of a repeater/extender that merely repeats the signal from the primary source.
  • It gets faster and stronger with more nodes. Because each node acts as a separate router, it seems that these connected nodes create a wireless cloud or web of connectivity. Each of the nodes in this web serves as a potential path where data can travel. So the more paths, the better.
  • It’s convenient. Since setting up doesn’t require wired connections, you can easily install and uninstall it. This is particularly helpful if you’re a nomad who keeps on moving houses. Even adding more nodes or devices doesn’t need a network administrator.
  • It may provide power to stand alone devices. Thanks to Power over Ethernet (PoE), a node in a mesh network can power up devices such as surveillance cameras. That means no need to plug it into an outlet.

What is eero Home WiFi System?

Aside from the obvious advantage of a mesh network system listed above, eero has even more to offer.

First, eero uses Tri-band WiFi radios and uses them simultaneously—2.4GHz, 5.2GHz, and 5,8GHz. This means you may now get faster connection compared to the first generation of eero Home WiFi system.

Second, you get regular updates. If there are new threats to the network, you can update the system immediately.

Third, it has Alexa integration plus the parental control feature that lets you filter content and pause the Internet on children’s devices.

Fourth, it supports DHCP, NAT, VPN passthrough, DNS, UPnP, Port Forwarding, and Static IP.

Best of all, the setup is easy. All you need is an iOS or Android device, an Internet service, and a cable or DSL modem.

The package comes with one eero 2nd generation device and one eero Beacon, the smaller yet as powerful hardware. To use Beacon, you just have to plug it into an electrical outlet. It also comes with a built-in LED light that automatically lights up when the surrounding room is dim.

Oh, one more good thing about the eero Home WiFi System is that you can connect as many Beacons as you want. For a 1-2 bedroom house, though, one eero and 1 Beacon should suffice.

TL;DR:

Need a fast and reliable WiFi connection anywhere in your home? Forget the WiFi extender. Get eero. No more dead spots. No more lags. Just pure wireless connectivity.
