Is the router you got from your cable company not cutting it anymore? If it’s slow, laggy and doesn’t cover every room — especially if you live in a two-story house — you're in luck. There’s a way to get a fast internet connection everywhere in your home without being forced to huddle in one room. And this early Prime Day deal makes it more affordable than ever.
Enter the Amazon eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi router, a compact wireless router that gets the job done as seamlessly as possible. It’s on sale for $83, a sweet $46 off for Prime members only. That’s the all-time lowest price for this popular gizmo.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Fast and reliable internet speeds
Here’s how it works: Simply connect this Wi-Fi router to your modem and place it in an open space. Once synced with your internet provider (it’s compatible with most major services), the eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi router can cover up to 1,500 square feet with speeds up to 900 Mbps. Unlike a Wi-Fi extender, which sacrifices speed for coverage, this mesh router can handle both. No lag, hiccups or dropouts! And shoppers are just in love with it.
"This device is super easy to set up and lightning fast," raved a very happy Amazon shopper. "I was able to stream two 4K movies and three HD movies on five devices at once with no lag. Set everything up in less than 10 minutes..."
Multiple device support
The eero 6 mesh Wi-Fi router can support up to an impressive 75 internet-enabled devices, so you can keep building out your smart home with reliable internet signal strength. You can also control all devices on your network with the eero mobile app to give more or less signal strength to devices that might need it.
For example: A Roku Streaming Stick or Fire TV Stick for 4K video streaming might need more speed, while your kids’ laptops could use slower speeds — especially if they’re supposed to be studying instead of watching YouTube videos. It even works with the Echo Dot and Alexa voice assistant for hands-free navigation. It’s also easy to set up!
"This router is amazing! This router was well worth the price and is possibly one of the best purchases I have ever made," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "We were having a hard time getting and keeping connections in certain areas in our home so we decided to try a new router and get rid of the one from the cable company. After researching and comparing different routers, I decided to pre-order the new Eero and try it out. I am so glad I decided on this one because not only did it get rid of our connection issues but it made our internet so much faster!! Both my husband and I agree that we have never had internet this fast! As of right now, I’m thrilled!"
"...This is the best thing ever! We use all streaming services, don’t have good cell phone reception and internet used to lag," added another five-star reviewer. "Since installing the eero 6, we have had no issues and I can’t believe the speeds we are receiving. It’s as if you are plugged into the modem with Ethernet cable everywhere in the house."
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A team of 50 police officers who serve on a specialized crowd-control unit in Oregon and respond to Portland's ongoing, often violent protests have resigned en masse after a team member was indicted on criminal charges. During a Wednesday night meeting, officers, detectives and sergeants on the Rapid Response Team voted to resign from the team because of a perceived lack of support from City Hall and from the district attorney over the past year, according to the mayor’s of
OTTAWA — The National Advisory Committee on Immunization said Thursday people who got the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine as their first dose should get Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna for their second shot. On June 1, NACI had said AstraZeneca recipients "could" get Pfizer or Moderna for their second shot if they wanted, but Thursday went further to say an mRNA vaccine was the "preferred" choice. "Since NACI first looked at mixed vaccine schedules, new evidence is starting to emerge suggesting immune res
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Frank Bonner, who played a brash salesman with an affection for polyester plaid suits on the TV comedy “WKRP in Cincinnati,” has died. He was 79. Bonner died Wednesday from complications of Lewy body dementia, said his daughter, Desiree Boers-Kort. The actor died at his home in Laguna Niguel, south of Los Angeles.

EDMONTON — A health spokesman says two patients at Calgary’s Foothills hospital have died from the Delta variant of COVID-19 — and one had been fully immunized. Kerry Williamson with Alberta Health Services says the two patients, a man and a woman, were in their 80s, had significant co-morbidities and probably acquired the virus in the hospital. "It’s important to remember that even after immunization, it's still possible to contract COVID-19," Williamson said Thursday in a news release. "Howeve

MONTREAL — The Canadian government is looking at a plan to reopen the United States border to people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, Quebec Premier François Legault said Friday. Legault told reporters at an event in Laval, Que., the reopening could happen when current border restrictions expire on July 21. “We had a meeting by telephone yesterday evening, the premiers of the provinces with Mr. Trudeau," Legault said.

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's promise of a two-dose fall is looking a lot more like it will become a two-dose August. Trudeau says Canada is on track now to have 68 million doses delivered by the end of July, which is more than enough to fully vaccinate all 33.2 million Canadians over the age of 12. Previously Canada expected enough to fully vaccinate 75 per cent of all eligible people before August, but Moderna has now scheduled another 11 million doses to be delivered in late June a

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Ethiopians will vote Monday in a landmark election overshadowed by reports of famine in the country’s war-hit Tigray region and beset by logistical problems that mean some people won’t be able to vote until September. The election is the centerpiece of a reform drive by Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, whose rise to power in 2018 seemed to signal a break with decades of authoritarian rule and led to his Nobel Peace Prize the following year. He has described the poll as “the nati
U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many of them hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for receiving Communion despite their support for abortion rights. The decision, vehemently opposed by a minority of bishops, came despite appeals from the Vatican for a more cautious and collegial approach to the divisive issue. And it raises questions of how closely the bishops will be able to cooperate with the Biden admini

VICTORIA — Students and parents can expect a near-normal return to school in British Columbia this fall as regular activities like assemblies and field trips are phased in and any transmission of COVID-19 is monitored. Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said there will be a "heightened concern" if the virus starts to spread in communities, but public health teams would manage it like any other communicable disease including influenza. Henry said some school activities may have to be temp
