    Amazon has it for $273. Currently also has 7% shopback on Amazon devices.

    Don’t forget prime day is tomorrow and Tuesday which may bring the devices even lower

    I having issues with 2.4 GHz connectivity on my current router and I want to replace it. I need the 2.4 GHz for the smart home stuff like bulbs, cameras etc.

    I just do the basic stuff like working from home on the work VPN, watch Netflix, no massive downloads, no online gaming.

    Would the single kit of the Amazon Eero be fine ( the one sold for $104 at JB hi-fi)? Overkill? Any suggestions of what I should get?

  •  

    What do I use these for?

  •  

    Keep in my mind these guys charge you a monthly fee for basic features such as a content filter

      Really Amazon mesh has a subscription? Is that what you mean?

        its free to use it as a regular wifi mesh unit, but if you want to use certain features such as content filtering/blacklisting website they will charge you $5 a month its called eero+ and they have one that is $15 a month called Eero secure that gives you security features, I guess if you don't need the content filter its fine, but most other brands don't charge you a monthly fee for these features

          most other brands don't charge you a monthly fee for these features

          True. All of these features are free on the Asus AX/AC routers. However, no mesh units at the above bargain price.

    •  

      Are there any mesh kits that offer content filtering for free?

      •  

        You could setup Pi hole, however not sure of the range of content filters outside adblock and analytics, would be surprised if you weren't able to find something suitable.

      •  

        My Asus DSL AC68U does it for free, can also connect via mesh.

        I think eero is the only brand that charge for a content filter, tp link Asus Netgear all of them don't charge

    •  

      These work fine without any subscription.

      •  

        its totally fine as long as you don't need a content filter

        •  

          I found that the content filters and extras was blocking communication between my ring doorbell and security cameras so turned those extras off while still on the 30 day free trial.

    The new Eero 6 was effectively $283 a few days ago if you also bought the Echo Dot clock at a 34% discount of $66.

    It wouldn't surprise me if this is cheaper on Prime Day next week.

    •  

      However, the Eero 6 does not have ethernet ports on the satellites, which may be important or useful to some. The Eero 6 Pro does, as does the kit in this deal.

      Reduced to $299 as part of Prime Day sale.. Plus cashback

    eero only supports IPoE. There is no option to use PPPoE and VLAN 802.1Q.

    If you want/need it. The base station can just be plugged directly into your existing router and will double-nat (YMMV)

    •  

      Wouldn't you just bridge your eeros and let your router do all the routing? Double NAT is bad, and best avoided!

      •  

        Depends on the nbn you have and router. eero can be used as a router or access point.

    •  

      For casual browsing and Netflix you can get away with double NAT. Double NAT can break access to Plex, cameras, remote access, servers, home automation and more.

    I assume these don't support WiFi6 yet. Maybe, future models will?

    •  

      eero (3rd gen) = Wi-Fi 5.

      eero 6 and 6 pro = Wi-Fi 6.

      •  

        Thanks. It doesn't look like Amazon AU is selling the Eero 6 Pro.

        However, the following deal looks very impressive. Built-in Zigbee smart home hub is an icing on the cake.

        Not sure how it will compare with the RT-AX88U / RT-AX86AU performance wise.

        •  

          The eero 6 pro is meant to come out in Oz at a later date. Asus RT-AX88U and RT-AX86U top speeds beat the eero 6 pro. Asus has more in-depth networking options to play around with if you are into that.

        Not sure of the pricing for the Eero Pro 6 but it is designated AX4200, which seems rather low for their top of the line device.
