Is there a way to disable 5ghz on the wholehome discs? Its playing havoc with my Dyson fans and my Ring Doorbell systems?
There is not currently a way to disable the 5ghz band that I know of.
Have you tried changing the 5ghz channel to see if that has any effect?
I realise this is a VERY old thread - but just in case, can I ask how you manage to set up the fan is the first place ? I recently switched to Whole Home and when I try to go through setup on the Dyson Link app, it refuses to accept that my iPhone is connected to my home network although it clearly is. I'm assuming it is because the phone connects at 5Ghz and the app simply will not allow it?
BT Whole Home Wi-Fi ( White Discs) send both 5GHz and 2.4GHz i.e. AC2600 Dual-Band wireless technology. so devices should have the option to join the network using either. However some 2.4GHz device can have a problem setting up if both are visible.
If you are having a problem setting up a 2.4GHz you can stop 5GHz for a short time using the WEB tool, so you can target your setup.
Thanks for that helpful info. I did look in the web interface but either I missed the option to temporarily stop the 5Ghz band or that option is very well hidden. I will have another look later - or is "the WEB tool" something different?
I have found that the Guest WiFi is recognised by the app as a valid network (probably 2.4GHz only?) so I could set it up on that but it would mean swapping WiFi networks every time I wanted to access the fan.
Hi the guest network is also dual band and the Web tool is the same as web GUi. It looks like the Web but is from the firmware on the Whole Home.
