Connect to the 2.4 GHz band
When connecting to a wireless network, you will now see both the old network name (SSID) which can be used for 2.4GHz connections and the new name you choose for the 5GHz band. This can be used for connections on compatible devices.
Thanks! I just tested it on my phone and I am getting higher speeds. will check to see how it goes over a period of time.
It says that the channel for 5ghz is channel 48... Now Isnt that a little bit high? usually they're like 8 max right?
Also the connection to my phone is weak. If I go into the "room to cook" (It's not letting me post Kitch*n :S) I cannot pick up the wireless on my phone, I am in a 1 bedroom flat btw so Its all close proximity!
5GHz use channel numbers 36 - 64
2.4GHZ use channels 1-13
5GHz has a very poor range in comparison to 2.4GHz which could be the reason you are getting a poor signal in the cooking room. Try selecting the 2.4GHz, if you have given them separate SSids and see how it performs.
