wifi connection

As a default the dual band router comes with only one network name, how does my devise connecting know which one it or i want to use? I ask because I want to utilize the band with the strongest strength depending on my location in my house. I read how to change it if I wanted to change it so that each band showes up separatly, but do I need to do that to beable to use both bands.

Re: wifi connection

If you are referring to the Comcast gateway device, you can set up wifi with two different SSID's.
