How to Change Wi-Fi Network Name on Eero Router from PC

Most wireless gateways and standalone routers have a web interface that allows users to change settings. Steps include obtaining the router's IP address, connecting to the router using a browser, and configuring wireless network settings. However, mesh networking kits like Eero don't work that way. To change your Wi-Fi network name for Eero routers, you need to use a mobile app. This is good because you don't have to go through tedious steps to locate your kit's IP like with regular routers.

The Eero app is available for iOS and Android, so download the appropriate one for your device and follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Eero app on your smartphone.
  2. Click the menu icon in the upper left corner.
  3. Tap on the “Network Settings” option.
  4. Open "Network name". Add a new network name in this section.

If you want to change your Eero Router's password, you can do so in the "Network Settings" section. Just add a new password under "Network Password" and you'll be good to go.



Bonus Section – What is a Mesh Network?

You may have tried changing the name of your Eero Wi-Fi network through your PC, but to no avail. This is because mesh networking kits don't work that way. Traditional routers provide centralized access points, while mesh devices such as Wi-Fi routers are decentralized. Instead of connecting to an internet gateway, networks are created using multiple nodes providing web connectivity.


With mesh networking kits, you can have a central hub in your living room and satellite nodes in your kitchen, office, or bedroom. So being in the living room, you automatically connect to the hub. When you are in the bedroom, you jump on the node.

Advantages of the mesh network

The mesh network provides extended coverage compared to traditional routers. They are more expensive but eliminate the inconvenience associated with coverage blackheads. In addition, the network is more reliable. Devices connect to nodes rather than central access points, which means fewer connectivity losses. Finally, the mesh network allows users to control settings using the mobile app. This means you can always keep tabs on your network, restart it, or turn it off completely with a single in-app tweak.


Name of the Eero Wi-Fi network according to you

Eero is a mesh networking kit that makes it easy to manage network settings. All the changes you'll need to make are just a few clicks away on your Eero Android or iOS app.

As for changing the name of your Wi-Fi network, just go to "Network Settings" in the app and add the name of your choice.
