Just got fibre at home and want to separate the two frequency bands and apply separate passwords to each. Is this possible as my attempts so far seem to allow onlky the same password. Any help appreciated./
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hubs only allow the one joint password
Get yourself a proper router with a guest network.
Not sure of the value of having different passwords for the 2 bands for guest purposes. They will still be accessing your LAN.
!! According to BT there's is the best and most powerful out there !!
Do you have any recommendations?
I don't see that working as not everyone will be able to access the 5ghz and all will be able to access the 2.4ghz and as @licquorice said both networks access you lan so not suitable for separate guest use
Only you know your requirements. If you want a cheap and cheerful single band router the TP Link TD-W9970 is about £35. For something a bit more sophisticated and dual band have a look at the TP Link VR600/900 and Billion routers. Cost is usually proportional to wifi speed.
