I want to specifically turn off my 5GHz wireless frequency but keep my 2.4GHz switched on, on my Hub Two. How do I do this?
Hi @Anonymous User
Out of curiosity, why would you want to switch off the 5ghz wifi band on your Hub 2 Router is it because of some sort of electronic interference or something else ?
I am guessing you don't want to split the two bands up on two separate wifi networks and just use the 2.4ghz wifi band by following these instructions ?
Your Hub Two is dual-band (2.4GHz and 5 GHz). Splitting these bands to create 2 different Wi-Fi networks can help to improve the speed to your devices. Here’s how to do it.
I found this on the Sky Broadband Forum (use admin & nowtv instead of sky) though i don't know if the instructions in the screen shot just hides the 5 ghz frequency or totally switches it fully off.
it seems that there is no way to disable 5g as every option shows that whatever you try, even in 5g settings , it will still apear in maintenance. disabeling ssid, wireless ap, whatever else you try...
its still running on both 2.4 and 5g even if you cannot detect 5g wifi name in your device connections. simply, thay made it impossible to switch 5g off.
As @schnapps asked the orignal poster why would you want to turn the 5Ghz off? 5Ghz is considerable faster than 2.4Ghz..........
Im here to find this answer because I need to add smart tech that must have the 5ghz wifi disabled to enable it to be connected to the 2.4ghz network. I am not sure why but there are a load of smart tech that demand this in order to set up their items.
If you split the Wi-Fi's then you can connect specifically to the 2.4Ghz with the smart device and the phone you are using to set them up. You should be able to recombine them after they are setup, if you wish.
Have a nosy at step 4 of this link as mentioned by @Anonymous User to split the Wi-Fi signals.
Why do some people always answer a question with a question?
heres an idea; they have a hidden camera that doesn't work on 5 GHz and only works on 2.4 GHZ.
just answer the question. Maybe you are the type of person they needs to be kept an eye on as you seem quite nosey. I would be vary conscious of my surroundings if I were you. Maybe someone is watching you right now!
