Can I use an eero Beacon as my gateway eero?

No, an eero Beacon cannot be used as your network's gateway (the eero connected directly to your modem). The gateway eero on your network requires an Ethernet connection to your upstream modem or device, so you will need to use a 1st or 2nd-generation eero.

Once you've set up your gateway eero, you can add eero Beacons to expand the coverage of your home network.
