i recently purchased a ring pro 3 doorbell and chime kit for use with my smart hub 2 it is described as dual band compatible.Doorbell install straight away no problems and updated its firmware.Not so the chime pro 2 which informed me that it was connected but not to the internet.Tried setting it up with my phone hotspot perfect. ring helpdesk suggested rebooting the smarthub no help at all.Was just about to send it back when disabled the 5 setting on the router chime connected ok to the 2.4 renenabled the 5 and everything works ok .The packaging claims that its dual band compatible so must be something odd about the bt smarthub 2
I presume dual band compatible is it can connect to eithe 2.4 or 5ghz networks but as you cannot split the networks on SH2 that is probably confusing the Ring. Solution as you discovered is to turn off the 5ghz and connect to 2.4ghz then re-enable the 5ghz
I'm having the same problem ie can connect the Ring Doorbell to SmartHub2 OK but not the Chime. Can you explain exactly what I need to configure the network Properties to to connect ie what are the steps after Properties then Configure?
When you say you disabled the 5 and the Chime connected OK via 2.4, what exactly are the steps (there seem to be several 2.4 options when I go to Properties and then Configure)? I am not technical but can follow the steps OK if they are spelled out for me. Thanks
Login to the hub manager through a browser by entering 192.168.1.254 in the address bar.
Click Advanced Settings
Click on the Wireless tile
Enter admin password
Toggle the switch below the 5Ghz and heed warnings about devices (i.e. the one you're managing the settings on) losing connection and click save
Pair you doorbell
When the doorbell is working, turn the 5GHz back on by toggling the switch again and clicking Save
There is just a reset button on the side of the Chime - someone else told me there is a hard reset you can depress using a needle, but that must be on an earlier model.
Turn Smart Setup off again, it will have been re-enabled as part of the factory reset.
Go into advanced wireless properties on the hub and check that the Wireless Mode is set to Mode 1.
Be aware that if its not set to Mode 1 because you have changed it to address another issue then that issue is likely to return
