We’ve had a long time struggle with our wireless connection over here. Our house isn’t huge, but there’s just something about the placement of our modem and router that makes it give us spotty coverage everywhere else. Okay, okay…our set up is in our basement (not our choice!). It was there when we moved in and so we just kept it there to keep things easy. Well, it’s not hard to imagine, but we get awful coverage on the 2nd floor. Especially in the master bedroom. This is such a damper on my nighttime youtube binging, hello! My husband even tried moving the whole set up out of the basement and still no dice. We’re guessing the old school iron tub in the upstairs is serving as a damper? Who knows…all I know is that watching the little buffer wheel go round-and-round was driving me nutty. About six months ago it got so bad that we replaced our router and modem and pretty much our whole set-up hoping for better service. Nope. Oh yeah and we tried switching services too. Yeah…double nope.
When eero reached out to me to collaborate I jumped on the chance. My husband was super excited when the eero box arrived. He’s heard amazing things and couldn’t wait to get it all set-up. Set-up was so easy by the way, basically plug-and-play. My kind of tech 😉 I love it when companies make it easier on you. Oh and also? I love it when companies make things look as good as they function! Who doesn’t?
We have the sleek eero base sitting on my desktop now. I think it fits right in, don’t you? And what’s better? Everything WORKS! We now can sit in bed and play on our laptops, or *ahem* watch YouTube! The kids are also YouTube addicts and can I tell you how heavenly it is to not have them running to me every five minutes because their connection was lost? It’s bliss I tell you, BLISS. I even watch shows and movies in the kitchen while I’m cooking. It’s pretty great, I must say, when the wireless network is on the same wavelength as the rest of us (did you see what I did there?). Moving on though, it’s great to be able to stream and download and pretty much function with our iPads, phones and laptops without having to cuss out the router anymore. You should try it, life changing really 😉
