Sagemcom 5366TN

Question:

 

I received the router today (finally) installed it and it immediately connected.

I set up the wifi (changing SSID & PW) to something more identifiable for family.

When I turn on wifi on iphone I see my wifi name:  connects without an issue.

The question I have is I have both the 2.4 & 5GHz frequencies enabled (by default)

I can only see one WIFI name on my devices.

Normally with other modems I can see both WIFI names ie sit shows both 2.4 & 5 ghz wifi's and you choose the one you want.

As it stands now both are enabled but I only see the name of my WIFI SSID only.  Connects OK.

If I rename the 5GHZ one to say myssid_5GHZ I can now see 2 x of my SSID's as opposed to one.

 

CAn someone explain why this happens?  Should i leave them the same name of change?

Or is the eouter authmactially picking the correct freqewuncey for me as I roam around the house ?

 

tia

the 5366 does not have band steering, so you should see both 2.4 and 5ghz networks. Sometimes the 5Ghz takes little longer to come up on the wifi network. I would hard reset the modem and see that the 5ghz is avaliable. If it is all works then change the SSID and Passphase to suit your needs.
