I have a Smart Hub as my main router and it works just fine, with both 2.4 and 5 GHz signals being fast and reliable. I have a repeater in my kitchen to boost the signal at the rear of the house, a TP-Link which also broadcasts on both 2.4 and 5 GHz.
I want to maximise the signal strength from the repeater on 2.4 GHz in order to be able to access the wifi in an outbuilding. Currently the signal there is acceptable on 2.4 GHz (and the 5 GHz doesn't seem to have the range to reach the outbuilding).
My question is whether the 2.4 GHz signal strength in the outbuilding would benefit from turning off the 5 GHz signal from the repeater?
Thanks for all advice.

Thanks, that's helpful. Just wanted to check there wasn't a simple performance tweak I could make.
You could try changing channel, but that will only help if the problem is interference, there are no tweaks otherwise.
