Blink won’t work

I need a splitter on my modem in order to operate my blink system because it works 2.4 and not 5.0

No. That's not how things work. That's the WAN system that connects to Comcast. This has to do your home network / LAN system.

 

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;

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