    What is Mesh and how does it work with eero?

    What is Mesh?

    eero is a mesh wifi system. Where traditional wifi systems use boosters to amplify a signal, mesh wifi devices are placed around the home and work together to create a unified, wide-ranging wifi signal.

  • Better wifi coverage
  • Fast wifi speeds
  • More connected devices at once without slowing down
  • Added safety, security, and reliability with easy over-the-air updates

  • TrueMesh

    With TrueMesh, eero optimizes performance based on your network layout, connected devices, and overall network usage. This results in fast speed, efficient coverage, and a reliable connection.

    All access points are communicating, and traffic is routed intelligently without reliance on “hub and spoke” nodes that slow down the network. If an eero device drops offline eero TrueMesh technology determines the ideal path among your eero devices, so your signal stays strong.

    What is eero Secure & eero Plus?

    eero units that are bought from Leaptel and connected to an Leaptel internet connect will automatically receive eero Secure.

    eero Plus is available for an additional cost of $15 per month. If you would like to upgrade to eero Plus please contact our support staff once your service is active.

    eero Secure

    eero Secure enhances your eero with services to help keep your connected devices safe and secure. With advanced parental control features like content filtering and Block and Allow, parents can place guardrails on their family's internet activity, while active threat protection helps prevent you from accidentally visiting known malicious sites that may infect your connected devices with malware. Too many online ads? eero can even block those for you, too.

    eero Secure features:

  • Active threat protection - Connect with confidence.
    Did you know that malicious websites can download malware to your devices without you ever knowing? eero Secure’s active threat protection helps keep your family safe from accidentally visiting known sites that could lead to phishing attacks and viruses.
  • Content filtering - The gatekeeper of good content.
    There are just some things that certain family members aren’t ready to see—and you can’t always be there to cover impressionable eyes. With content filters, you can easily set restrictions for designated devices based on age range—pre-k, pre-teen, teen, and adult—or they can be customized based on content categories.
  • Block and Allow - Access is at your fingertips
    While content filters are great, sometimes you need extra control over the sites and apps your family can and can’t view. For these moments, we’ve got you covered with Block and Allow.
    Block lets you prevent particular websites and apps from displaying on certain family members’ devices. So, if you don’t mind a little social media use, but they aren’t quite ready for Snapchat and Reddit, you can adjust access accordingly. On the flip side, Allow enables you to open access to websites and apps otherwise blocked by content filters.
  • Ad blocking - Say goodbye to annoying pop-ups.
    Tired of getting a million pop-up ads when you’re just trying to read an article? eero Secure helps improve your internet experience by blocking a variety of intrusive ads on your devices for a better browsing experience.
  • eero Internet Backup - eero’s got your back(up).
    Enhancing the reliability of your eero network to keep you working, learning, and gaming even during temporary internet interruptions. eero Internet Backup is an innovative feature of eero Secure that lets you add alternate wireless backup connections—like a personal hotspot to keep your wifi up and running (mobile data charges may apply)
  • eero Plus

    For those who need even more protection, eero has you covered. eero Plus extends eero Secure even further, adding eero Dynamic DNS and licenses for 1Password, Malwarebytes, and Encrypt.me. With eero Secure and Plus, you get the tools you need to manage your wifi.

    eero Plus features:

  • 1Password - Password management made easy.
    Let’s get real. You can’t remember all your passwords anyway. So, why bother? With 1Password, the only login you need is the one for your 1Password account. It can even auto-generate strong passwords for you. So, go ahead and forget your passwords.
  • Malwarebytes - Stay one step ahead of threats.
    From spyware to identity theft, malware has become increasingly stealthy and pervasive. Malwarebytes is an anti-malware solution that scans, cleans, and helps protect your computers and mobile devices from viruses, ransomware, and more. Malwarebytes works on and off your eero network for non-stop protection.
  • Encrypt.me - Keep prying eyes at bay
    With so much of our lives happening online, you need to be able to connect securely no matter where you are. Encrypt.me lets you browse the web privately using a secure VPN, perfect for when you need to connect somewhere public, like at a cafe, airport, or hotel.
  • eero Dynamic DNS - Remote access with Dynamic DNS
    Accessing your home network devices and content from anywhere should be easy. When your dynamic home IP address rotates, you can quickly lose the ability to connect to your home. With DDNS, remotely access your home devices and content through an easy-to-use URL so that even as your IP address changes, your access does not.
