Re: Smart Bulbs Need 2.4 GHz....How Do I??

Most all routers and gateways support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The devices should see what is available. Some people like to give the two frequencies different names so devices that can use either can be forced onto one or the other.

If you are using a Comcast supplied gateway device, the two WiFi bands have recently been combined into one. 


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.
