Re: Unable to get different SSID for 5G

Thanks @Datalink any reason why this new coda modem wifi band steering was already disabled? If I’m not mistaken I read somewhere saying it’s enabled out of the box.

Nope, don't know why the CGN3s were commanded to run Band Steering while the 4582s weren't.  Maybe the 4582s were overlooked, just a guess.  

 

I'm working on a response to your ping question.  Should have it finished shortly.

To turn off the band steering you can go to the ADVANCED tab on the Wireless page. Took me a bit of time to find it.

Re: Unable to get different SSID for 5G

Many posts about splitting SSID into separate 2.4G & 5G are missing to mention that a reboot of router is probably needed on Hitron for disabling & splitting to take effect.

I disabled steering & still couldn't see 2 SSIDs.
Then I rebooted the modem & was able to see 2 names on all my devices.

As is the case with many forums, images will get approved by a moderator, usually a few minutes after posting.
