5 to 2.4 ghz


I have a Chromecast , which as far as I know operates on 2.4ghz

I'm having trouble connecting the Chromecast,

When I look it says it's in 5ghz, how do i move it permanently to 2.4?

Re: 5 to 2.4 ghz


Your easiest solution is to separate the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. This gives the hub two separate SSIDs, one with the original SSID and the second with the same SSID except it will have -5 added to the name. Both use the same password, see Use whichever works best for your other devices.

Note that the second generation Chromcasts work on both bands bur probably doesn't like the two synchronised.
