Amazon Echo Speakers – Certain Echo devices can extend your Wi-Fi network IF YOU HAVE AN Eero mesh network. Amazon Echo Speakers was acquired by Amazon in 2019 and has since produced some of the greatest mesh Wi-Fi routers available. If you link your Amazon and Eero accounts, the Eero series offers tight integration and is especially suited for Alexa-based smart homes.
Keep in mind that Eero Built-in is currently only accessible in the US and Canada as you read on to learn which Echo devices can serve as Eero Wi-Fi extenders and how to set them up.
Your mesh network can now use any Echo device with the “Eero Built-in” badge as a Wi-Fi extender. Amazon Echo Speakers can connect up to 10 devices, provide speeds of up to 100 Mbps, and increase coverage by up to 1,000 square feet. The 5 GHz spectrum is utilised by all authorised Echo devices (no 2.4 GHz or 6 GHz support).
