I'm having this problem too. My WiFi printer is confused because it thinks there are 2 access points (2.4 and 5.0 GHz) with the same SSID so it won't connect to the network. I can't get around this with my Gateway and Pods. My printer is "oldish" so I'm considering upgrading my printer but I have no guarantee that a new printer won't see this same problem.
I suggest changing the name of your Wifi networks. indicating the Bands they communicate on..
BiFrost and BiFrost5G. this way you wont have to rely on band steering... Which has never worked for me unless I dropped the 2.4Ghz radio power down to match or be less then of the 5Ghz distance.
2.4Ghz travels much further then the 5Ghz band, and it would always choose 2.4 because of stronger signal strength. Thus all my 5Ghz capable demons would be connected at 2.4 and sometimes 5GHZ if in spitting distance.
I prefer the manual route myself by keeping these seperate. That way you know exactly what its connected on.
The bands must be combined for the pods to be able to function...
That's what I figured. So, am I having the problem with my printer because it's older? Is there any assurance that a new printer won't havethe same problem seeing the same name for both bands?
