I have a Hub One.
I have unsynced the 2.5 and 5.0 Ghz and renamed ssid by adding -5G.
Searching for networks on an iPad shows the original ssid and the -5G
I need to understand what I am seeing. Is it as simple as the original ssid connects to a synced connection and the -5G to the unsynced connnection, in other words do I have a choice?
I also have a TPLink AV600 range extender. Which one does that sync with?
probably dumb questions when you know what you are doing, sorry.
just a little clarification would help.
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Your original that you see is the 2.4Ghz band, and will be available over a greater distance than the 5Ghz band, however the 5Ghz channels will be less prone to interference from other routers that may be close by, and will offer higher connections speeds. Separating them allows your devices a clearer choice of which to use, and stops potential problems of them getting confused if both SSID's are the same.
Re: Clarify unsynced 2.4 & 5 Ghz
Thank you. So I assume my TP-Link AV600 Range Extender connects with the original 2.4 Ghz ssid, is that correct.
I have one in the kitchen and I am thinking of getting a second AV600 for the conservatory as the Hub One doesn't seem to have the same coverage as the technicolor tg582n we had previously.
