How to Factory Reset the Eero Home Wi-Fi System

Oyetoke Tobi - Saturday, January 14, 2017

Do you have the Eero Home Wi-Fi system? Having issues with your Eero Wi-Fi or moving into a new place and want to factory reset it? 

In case you are having issues with your Eero after meddling with settings you shouldn’t or moving into a new place and planning to sell it or just want to factory reset it, here’s how to factory reset it so you can start fresh from scratch.

Now there are two ways you can use to factory reset your Eero system. You can either reset it through the Eero app on your phone, or using the reset button on the back of your Eero devices.

Luckily, both methods are very easy and we’ll explain how you can factory reset it through the two methods.

How to Reset Eero Home Wi-Fi System Through the Eero App

Actually, this is the fastest and easiest way to reset your entire Eero system because it completely wipes everything instantly so that you can start setting it up from scratch again.

Open the Eero app on your phone. 

Tap on the menu button at the top-left corner of the screen.

Then select “Network Settings” from the list.

Then tap on “Advanced Settings” at the very bottom side.

Now select “Delete Your Network” option at the bottom side on the next screen.

So ensure you read the warnings before hitting the “Delete Network” button at the bottom to completely reset everything.

Now tap on “Delete Network” again when the pop-up appears.

Then, you’ll be redirected to the setup screen where you can start setting up the Eero Home Wi-Fi again. You can start setting it up or just close it in case you’re planning to sell your Eero devices.

How to Reset Eero Home Wi-Fi System Using the Reset Button

This method is a little bit lengthy and technical, but don’t worry we got your back. Using the reset button on the back of your Eero device to reset your Eero gives you two different kinds of reset options: a soft reset and a hard reset. The hard reset option does the same thing as resetting it through the Eero app, however soft reset option will still keep some of your network settings.

Eero says that a soft reset “will clear all network configurations from the Eero, but preserve its sessions.” So it makes your Eero still connected to your network, and any logs and advanced settings (such as IP reservations and port forwarding configurations) will still be saved.

So to carry out a soft reset, you’ll be using an unfolded paperclip or any tiny object. Then insert it into the reset button hole, press and hold down the reset button with the paperclip until the LED light on the Eero unit shows yellow, which should be about seven seconds.

To do a hard reset, press and hold down the reset button until the LED shows red, and that should be around 15 seconds.

That’s all. Make sure you have the units plugged in until the Eero system is reset completely. At that point the LED light on each unit will start blinking blue when the reset process is complete.
