Hi all wander if anyone can help I have the smart hub 2 and only a few devices are connecting to 5ghz. I have gone into wireless network settings in the hub and switched on 5ghz and renamed it and connected every device that can connect to 5ghz, then switch it back to both 2.4ghz and 5ghz then reconnect the devices. Then tested the device slow Internet connection check hub setting and found devices reconnecting back to 2.4ghz we also have the disc to help connection. Is it worth connecting the old hub where I had a split connection any advise please thanks
The Wi-Fi disks only work with the smart hub 2, so they won't work if you go back to the old hub.
5GHz gives a better quality connection but has a shorter range and does not propagate through solid objects as well as 2.4GHz, therefore this kind of problem is common if you live in an old house with solid interior walls.
You could try temporarily turning off the 2.4GHz carrier, telling your devices to forget the current connection to your hub and learn it again whilst stood close to it (the hub). Don't forget to turn the 2.4GHz back on.
