Personally, I do not think it is a Mac problem, more that BT is trying to be too clever with its dual range wireless frequency....without checking the kind of connections and platform that everyone is using. I don't think we should blame the Macs!
This worked a treat. Many Thanks; BT should pop this on their FAQs. Bloomin' MACs being awkward!
You mean like this
@Chrismith92 Wherever you are - THANKS THANKS THANKS a ton. I have been struggling with this issue for years. Changed flats (not bcs of the broadband issue, but, just saying). Changed computers (from Mac to Mac). Changed routers. Changed channels of said routers. Restarted router and computer about 10^120 times. Nothing worked - until now.
Many thanks for the detailed instructions as well (I am as far away from a computer nerd as humanly possible and sometimes some of those forums left me thinking I couldn't understand English)
This solved a problem we'd been having on the Mac for months, thankyou!
Only problem now is all of the devices in the house now connect to 2.4GHz and are running incredibly slowly on the internet. None of them seem to have the network with the '5' I have added at the end on the list of networks to connect to.
Am I missing something?
