Change SSID

Some home automation devices use the 2.4ghz band. My xfinity router combines the SSID and password for the 2.4 and the 5ghz. I need to provide a unique SSID for the 2.4 How do I change the SSIS?

If you are not using any Xfi Pods, you can separate the 2.4 and the 5.0 bands and give them two different broadcast names / SSID's;

Associate those devices with the 2.4 band's SSID (broadcast name) and password.

I figured it out!

In xFi, either through chrome or in xfinity app tap "pencil icon" to rename SSID's separately.

ie: 

passwords2.4G

password5G

Go to:

Connect> See Network> My Network> Pencil

This will give you the option of checking boxes to separate your channels.Confirmed working 04/02/2021
