If your internet service provider (ISP) is down and your eeros, while properly connected, cannot identify an internet connection, this is known as an “outage.”
Problems with your Internet connection may arise if your eero gateway is malfunctioning. Perhaps it isn’t powered on or linked to the modem.
Is it plugged in and connected? (properly)
In this case, you should verify that your Eero is linked to the modem and, if so, that the connection is secure. Make sure both the modem and the eero are active simultaneously.
Verify that the Ethernet wire linking the modem and the eero is plugged into the correct port on each device. There should be a click when the Ethernet cable is inserted into the port.
