Advertisements I switched my home from a regular router/extender network to an Eero based system about 2 months ago. I had Ethernet running to all my Tivo Minis but the Eero base units include 2 Ethernet ports so I decided to test if I could connect my Eeros via WiFi and hook a Mini to the Ethernet port and get acceptable connections. The Eero I tested was placed in my second floor bedroom about 30 feet from the main Eero base unit. After one week the Mini has not hiccuped one time. Perfect reception. Conclusion... you can trick your Mini into using a WiFi connection if you have Eero for your WiFi system and you don’t have to much distance between your units. Eero is a mesh system which you can learn about on either Amazon or their website.
