There’s a lot to like about the new Eero 6 and Eero Pro 6 routers, and both have immediately entered contention for the best Wi-Fi 6 routers on the market. Whether you have a large home with a lot of space to cover or just an apartment with one or two rooms, the Eero 6’s mesh Wi-Fi network makes sure that every inch of your home is protected. But just like with the last generation, you’re probably looking for the best Eero 6 mounts to help save some space. We’ve got you covered with a few of the best options.
Can you use your old Eero mount with the Eero 6?
If you are upgrading from your older Eero to the new Eero 6 or Eero 6 Pro, you may be wondering if you can use the same mounts. This is a question that is asked whenever a series of products is upgraded, and sometimes, the company keeps the same design while upgrading the internals.
However, if you look at the Eero 6 vs. Eero Pro, you’ll quickly notice that it’s just not possible to use your older mounts because the Eero 6 and Eero 6 Pro both feature a slightly larger design. It’s for this reason that you’ll end up finding a lot of mounts for Eero routers that are not compatible with the newer version. But we expect the number of options for Eero 6 horses to increase the longer that the Eero 6 is available.
These are the best Eero 6 mounts.
It should come as no surprise that the Mount Genie Eero Genie is the best Eero 6 mount to grab, as Mount Genie also is a fan-favorite for those with the best Eero mounts for last-generation routers. The Eero Genie is designed to fit both the new Eero 6 and the Eero Mesh routers while being compatible with the 15W and 24W power bricks. Plus, if you have multiple Eero routers around the home, Mount Genie offers a two-pack and three-pack of these mounts.
Those who opted to go down the route of the Eero 6 Pro instead of the standard version will want to get in on the fun with a great mount. Mount Genie is again our favorite option with the Eero Genie Pro for the Eero 6 Pro. This mount provides a low profile while including a “dummy ground prong” to support the Eero 6 Pro in the wall socket. Just wrap the cable up inside the Cord Groove Organizer, place your router in the holder, and plug it into the wall.
