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."

Wearing a baseball cap and knee-length traditional Gho robe, carrying a backpack, Bhutan's king has walked through jungles infested with leeches and snakes, trekked mountains and quarantined several times in a hotel in the capital. For 14 months, King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, has been travelling by foot, car and horse to remote hamlets to oversee measures to protect his tiny kingdom of 700,000 from the coronavirus outbreak that has flared up in neighbouring India. The impact of the 41-year-old king's excursions are evident in a COVID-19 death toll of just one for the nation nestled between India and China in the Eastern Himalayas.
The United Nations human rights chief should document her own findings on the plight of Uyghurs in Xinjiang even without China's blessing for a visit, activists and Western diplomats say, amid signs that her patience may be running out. Michelle Bachelet, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said on Monday that she hoped to agree on terms for a long-sought visit to China this year to look into allegations of mass detention, torture and forced labour. Canada led a record 45 countries, including the United States, in urging China on Tuesday to allow Bachelet immediate access to Xinjiang for a first-hand assessment.
Parts of Sydney will enter a fresh one-week lockdown starting Friday at midnight.Australian authorities are trying to tamp down a spike in the highly-contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus. The affected areas include the Sydney Central Business District, as well as the city's eastern suburbs, where the iconic Bondi Beach lies. Some doctors however warn the move is not enough.The Australian Medical Association called for a complete lockdown of the country's biggest city to avoid the virus spreading nationwide.But New South Wales, where Sydney is located, has held off calls for a hard lockdown.Instead they've again made masks mandatory indoors and limited home-gatherings to five.Total infections in the newest outbreak have so far topped 60. Authorities are also worried about a potential super-spreader event in a salon where three staff were infected, and over 900 clients visited last week.

Australia's COVID-19 numbers have been relatively low, aided by lockdowns, swift contact tracing and strict social distancing rules. In response to the recent outbreak, New South Wales has been effectively isolated from the rest of the country.Other states like Queensland and Victoria have reinstated tough border rules, including a total ban for visitors from Sydney's virus-hit suburbs.Sydney is home to a fifth of the country's population of 25 million.
Toshiba shareholders on Friday voted out its board chairman and one other director, in a rebuke against the company.Osamu Nagayama had been under pressure to resign as chairman after an independent investigation earlier this month accused Toshiba of colluding with the government to block foreign investors from gaining influence on the board.Nagayama's supporters say his ouster will set Toshiba back, depriving the company of experienced leadership.The vote's breakdown was not immediately disclosed, but according to a Toshiba source, foreign investors had voted in greater number than prior meetings.For many, the probe and vote results marked a watershed moment for corporate governance in Japan, as experts say that the investigation would have been unthinkable just years ago.A member of the audit committee, Nobuyuki Kobayashi, was also voted out.The next chairman will be decided by the newly elected board, set to start that discussion later on Friday.
