The eero system is constantly optimizing to maximize performance. There are 3 different time scales in which your system optimizes:
- Short Term - Your mesh takes between fifteen seconds and a minute to figure out the best path for data to travel through your network when any new request is made.
- Medium Term - The system takes about an hour to learn what kind of interference you have around your home, and learn to tune it out as best it can.
- Long Term - It takes between two days and a week to select the best channels for your network. This is very disruptive to your network so we try not to do it too often.
Any time the system reboots, these optimizations restart. So it is best to avoid reboots as much as possible.
