We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
Where there's a will, there's a way - as cumbersome as it may be.
If you're willing to spend around £30 then there is a way you can continue to use the SH2 and select the 5GHz network.
The only drawbacks are the outlay and the fact that the two networks will be completely independant, so when you move out of range of the 5GHz carrier you will have to select the 2.4Ghz network manually
So that won’t boost the 5ghz signal that’s my issue my phone keep switching to 2.4ghz
No, its only a 2.4GHz device, but it will give you a strong 2.4GHz signal upstairs, and has a separate wireless SSID, so you can exclude it from your connection list.
If you use the older home hub that they send, that can have a separate SSID for 5GHz, so you can make your phone connect to that.
What you will end up is two separate 2.4GHz wireless networks, and a single 5GHz network, so you can choose whichever one you want.
You may find that the stronger 2.4GHz signal from the hotspot, connects at faster speed. It also normally operates on a different wireless channel than the home hub so may have less interference.
So I could connect the booster then turn of the SH2 2.4 and the 2.4 from the booster would connect to the 2.4ghz devices on the booster within a separate ssid?
hope that makes sense??
