All will be for naught when the cell carries get their data networks rolling, everything will connect through them making home wifi obsolete.

The obstacle I see with 5G replacing WiFi is that in many cases devices in the home need to be on the same network segment. This is true whenever broadcast or multicast traffic is involved, such as when commissioning and operating a Sonos system.
If it's not simple, it's not sufficiently advanced.

Consumer quality reports continually place Eero dead last which has come up with several clients. Somehow Orbi, Velop, Google, etc seem to always outclass in these BS reports. SO wish they would have leaned on Netgear or Cisco for their crappy offerings.

I guess I might discount those reports.

When you install Wi-Fi for somebody, if there are problems, you will hear about it.

Eero is a very solid product in my opinion, and several others here. On top of that, their technical support is US based, and is some of the best tech support you will find anywhere. For that reason they are at the top of the heap for me.

To clarify my statement with you (again), I like Eero. A lot. My initial (knee jerk) reaction to this news was fear. I am in no way supporting Consumer Reports, but rather attempting to shed light on what our clients are seeing when they do their homework.

Going forward, Iíll try to be less cryptic in my communication.

I hope nothing changes- I haven't sold many, but what I have sold has worked great, it's MUCH better than anything I have used and I'm tired of learning the hard way that something doesn't do what it should.

What do you others do with network hardware that has become obsolete after only a year or two?

I understood it right away. Mostly because if you dig into reviews you see things like "one star because I dropped it in the fish tank while high on meth and Amazon took two days to send me a free replacement". Or "one star definitely returning this because it doesn't have Wi-Fi unless you buy cable internet for your house".

Somewhere, someone is trying to use an EERO with dial-up.

Depends on what it is...I pulled out 4 Ruckus R700s a while back and will throw them up on eBay and give the client a credit. My time is billable of course. Other stuff goes in the recycle. Last couple of refits it was Apple and older Pakedge so not worth saving.

Holy Toledo! That was an expensive setup to scrap and not terribly old, right?

Client specifically asked for 4x4 radios so I gave him options. The Ruckus was working fine when I removed it
