What is the difference between eero Built-in wifi extender and eero Built-in wifi router?
Both eero Built-in capabilities extend eero’s wifi technology, including TrueMesh, to non-eero hardware. However, with an eero Built-in wifi router device such as the Ring Alarm Pro, the device has the full functionality of a Wi-Fi 6 router (learn more about Ring Alarm Pro here). With an eero Built-in wifi extender, like the Echo Dot (5th Gen), the device simply extends your existing router’s range, but still requires a separate router.
