Eero wants to eliminate Wi-Fi dead spots 

in your home without extenders


Relying on one router to serve up Wi-Fi for your entire house can be frustrating and lead to dead spots. San Francisco-based startup, Eero, thinks it has the answer to that issue and doesn’t rely on irritating Wi-Fi extenders.

Rather than using a single router, Eero encourages you to deploy a distributed system of smaller devices that connect to each other via mesh networking. One will set you back $129, with a pack of three priced at $299. The company claims three will provide good coverage for a typical home.

The first Eero you install hooks up to your existing modem. The look of the device was created by Fred Bould, the industrial designer who worked on the Nest thermostat and Nest Protect. Inside, there are dual Wi-Fi radios for 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1GHz processor, 512GB of RAM and 1GB of storage.
