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?

Re: Change SSID

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.
