Thanks for following up. Even with Bluetooth I'm immediately getting "Connection target not found" the issue is that this feature isn't a huge deal because i hardly shoot remotely but to not be able to use it seeing i switched back from shooting sony for similar reasons is frustrating for sure.

Looks like this is a known problem connecting R5/R6 to eero mesh networks, and there's (another) workaround.
Hopefully a future firmware update will fix this permanently.

I faced the same issue and identified the problem + kind of a solution.
Each WiFi router transmits the signal on certain Channel (1-13) and Channel Width (20/40 MHz). Usually the best channels are 1, 6 and 11, whereas the width depends on the signal congestion in the area. What I noticed while trying to find my SSID was that mostly networks with channels 6, 9 and 11 were shown in the R6 list.
My settings were set to Channel 13 / 40 MHz.
When I updated them to CH 9 / 20MHz, then only my network SSID was displayed in the list and I was able to connect without any problem. I tried with 6 / 20 MHz and it also worked.
So, basically, CANON must fix the WiFi configuration in both R5 and R6 so that users can connect easily like with any other device.
P.S. I also replied in the DPreview thread.
