How to change the name of the 2.4GHz band to something different from the 5GHz band?

I am having issues connecting a device and I would like to be able to choose which band I connect my device to.

Hi jeanpierrecaron,

 

The best way to separate the two networks is with the following procedure:


1- Go to your  HelixFi mobile app
2- Go to the Connection tab
3- Go to View Connection
4- Click on the white pencil logo at the top right corner of the screen
5- Check the box "Use different names and passwords for 2.4 and 5 GHz"
6- Create a 2.4 GHz network name and a 5 GHz network name and two passwords.
7- Then, don't forget to click on Apply.
8- Finally, try to connect your devices on 2.4 GHz network you created and for your other devices, connect them on the 5 GHz network.

 

Hope this will help! Have a good day! 

 

What if the option to separate the two networks is no longer available

If you have Helix pods installed, it's not possible to separate the networks as the pods work in mesh.
Have a nice day!
