Hi guys. I have a couple of devices that can connect to either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz wifi which I want to connect to 5 GHz. I also have a couple of devices that can only connect to 2.4 GHz wifi.
How can I get the 5 GHz capable devices on 5 GHz wifi while still allowing the 2.4 GHz only devices to connect?
The last free modem I got from my ISP broadcasts both frequencies as 2 separate networks. Can this be done with the MAX HD2? One cool thing about this set up was that devises that had to be “on the same network” to work with each other still did work with each other even if one was on the 2.4 GHz and the other was on the 5 Ghz connection.
When I set
AP >> settings >> Preferred Frequency 2.4 GHz 5 GHz
to 2.4ghz everything works on a 2.4 Ghz wifi network. When I set it to 5 GHz The 5 GHz capable devices connect to a 5 GHz wifi net work and the 2.4 GHz only devices can not connect.
I have tried creating a new SSID so now there is 1 SSID set to 5 GHz and one set to 2.4 GHz but only one is being broadcast by the router…
What can be done? Thanks.
