Is your router not cutting it anymore? If it’s slow, laggy and doesn’t cover every room—especially if you live in a two-story house—don’t despair. There’s a way to get a fast internet connection everywhere in your home without being forced to huddle in one room.
Enter the eero mesh Wi-Fi router, a compact wireless router that’ll do the job without skipping a beat. A two-pack is on sale for $169, or $46 off at Amazon. Plus, it comes with a free Echo Flex smart home device (a $25 value)!
Fast and reliable internet speeds
Here’s how it works: Simply connect this Wi-Fi router to your modem and place it in an open space. Once synced with your internet provider (it’s compatible with most major services), the eero mesh Wi-Fi router can cover up to 1,500 square feet with speeds up to 550 Mbps.
Since this is a two-pack, you get double the coverage. If you have dead zones on a second floor or in the backyard, you can place a second eero node just in range of the first one to extend your Wi-Fi coverage an additional 1,500 square feet without losing any internet speed—unlike a Wi-Fi extender, which sacrifices speed for coverage.
“Blankets your house with dependable Wi-Fi. This set up gave us exceptional internet for most of our devices throughout the house, except third floor and outside on the patio,” explains a five-star reviewer. “So, I bought two additional eeros which connect seamlessly and quickly to the existing system—one for the kitchen which is adjacent to the patio and one for the third floor. Now we have super-fast Wi-Fi throughout the entire house and even in an unattached garage and loft area.”
Multiple device support
The eero mesh Wi-Fi router can support up to a whopping 120 internet-enabled devices (that’s 240 devices with two nodes), so you can keep building out your smart home with reliable internet signal strength. You can also control all devices on your network with the eero mobile app to give more or less signal strength to devices that might need it.
For example: A Roku Streaming Stick or Fire TV Stick for 4K video streaming might need more speed or your kids’ laptops could use slower speeds—especially if they’re supposed to be studying instead of watching YouTube videos. It even works with the Echo Dot and Alexa voice assistant for hands-free navigation.
“This is a fantastic, very easy to setup wireless router that likely blows the pants off of the router built into your cable modem or whatever old wifi router you've been using for a decade,” shares a satisfied shopper.
Free Echo Flex
It even comes with a free Echo Flex smart home device, which simply plugs into any wall outlet for instant access to Alexa. Use it in the kitchen, in the basement or even in the bathroom. Ask it for weather reports, takeout hours, to turn off the lights and more. You can essentially use it as an intercom, to tell the kids to wash up for dinner or ask your spouse to take out the garbage.
“I installed the Echo Flex in my basement (where I do my laundry and occasionally sift through seasonal items or stored items). I didn’t need a lot of features,” adds another five-star Amazon reviewer. “I just needed Alexa to answer questions, tell me the time, give me a reminder or notification or just keep me company. The Echo Flex works perfectly for my needs.”
For just $169 (was $215), this eero mesh Wi-Fi router (two-pack) is ideal for gamers, cord-cutters or anyone who wants fast and reliable internet access. If you can’t live without Wi-Fi, this two-pack can breathe new life into your home—especially if your internet is spotty at best.
