Whole Home WiFi is a connected system of one or more access points to extend and share wireless signals throughout your entire home. As a result, a “mesh network” is created providing greater internet connectivity and reliability when compared to traditional WiFi setups.
Have you ever noticed that your WiFi signal is stronger in your living room than it is in your bedroom? Or that you can stream videos in your kitchen but can’t even load a webpage in your backyard? The challenge of traditional WiFi networks is that they rely on single routers to broadcast a WiFi signal. This means that your signal is strong when you’re near your router and gets weaker as you move away.
While your modem remains in place, one or more eeros are added to your home to enable a mesh network, blanketing your home in pervasive internet speed, everywhere.eero Start Up Guide
A mesh network enables multiple routers (or eeros) to work as a team, resulting in improved range, speed, and stability of your WiFi network. Most other WiFi systems only allow for one hop in any direction. Something as simple as a wall can prevent your devices from getting the WiFi signal they need. With a mesh network, such as TrueMesh, WiFi seamlessly hops between eeros, travels down hallways, or goes around walls.
RCN’s enhanced Whole Home WiFi was designed to be flexible to fit any home - regardless of your living situation. Here are some hints to help you decide how many eeros you need whether you’re living in an apartment, townhouse, single family home or larger home.
