2.4ghz

My router appears to only have a 5ghz network. Is there a way to add 2.4 ghz?

Re: 2.4ghz

The two WiFi bands have recently been combined into one with the Comcast gateway devices. Some devices get confused and don't know how to see / talk to combined bands.


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

Re: 2.4ghz

Thanks, but those options don’t seem to be available to me. I’m just trying to connect to Alexa plugs. Just not worth further effort at this point.
