Use Eero With FiOS Modem

The Eero routers share great compatibility with other modems, and that is why their popularity is increasing in the market. You can configure the modem with the Eero router by connecting both of them using an ethernet cable. You can call the Verizon fibre solution centres if you want to configure your FiOS model with the help of coax cable. They will switch from ONT to ETHERNET.

You can also connect your Eero router behind the router you are currently using to create a temporary double NAT setup. Further, put the Eero in the bridge mode. With the help of this configuration, the Eero router can work alongside the router you are currently using and maintain compatibility with Fios TV and internet service.

How Do You Use Eero With Other Modems?

Some of the few things that you have to keep in mind before using Eero with other modems are-

Compatibility

Any modem can indeed be paired with Euro routers, but not all modems use their full capabilities. 

For the best performance, you should consider DOCSIS 3. a 1-based modem with 32×8 channel bonding. These types of modems utilise the full benefits of wifi 6 and exhaust gigabit internet plans. Even older routers like DOCSIS 3.0 modem will be enough.

Suggested modems for Eero 

Some of the modems that share good compatibility with Eero are- 

  • ARRIS surfboard S33
  • Netgear CM500 
  • Netgear Nighthawk CM 1100

These modems are budget-friendly and share high compatibility with the Eero router system.

Switching to Bridge mode

If you want to use your Eero router with other routers/modems, then you will switch to the bridge mode and create a Double NAT setup.

If you want to use Eero with other modems with the help of the Eero app, then here is how you can do that-

  • You first have to connect the Eero system to the router/modem using an ethernet cable. 
  • Firstly, you have to install the Eero app, go to the settings icon and click on it. The settings icon will be located at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Choose the "advanced" option.
  • Tap on the DHCP and NAT icon.
  • Now you have to change your selection from "automatic" to "bridge" or "manual mode."
  • Now select the "save" icon from the top right corner of the app interface.

Follow all the steps carefully to use the Eero router with other modems.
