Welcome everyone to this blog post tutorial on how to separate your Wi-Fi bandwidth into 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. This is useful because some devices only support one frequency, causing difficulties when connecting them. For example, I have a Wi-Fi camera that I want to connect to my home network, but I couldn’t do it because my box only offered the 5 GHz frequency.
To solve this, we need to access the Wi-Fi settings of our router. I will be demonstrating with an Orange Livebox, but the steps should be similar for other routers. First, open a new tab and type « livebox/ » in the search bar, followed by the login credentials. If you haven’t changed the password, you can use the first characters of the security key located under your Livebox. Once you’re logged in, navigate to the Wi-Fi settings.
In the Wi-Fi settings, you will find the option to manage and modify your networks. Here, you will see the available frequencies, such as 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Click on the network name that corresponds to your Livebox model, in my case « Livebox 4 B16. »
Now, we need to select the desired frequency, in this case, the 2.4 GHz. Once selected, save the changes. Note that some devices may require re-pairing after the modification.
After saving the changes, a new network will be created with the selected frequency, while the original network will remain unchanged. You can check the available networks on your device and connect to the desired frequency.
If you want to customize the network name, you can do so by clicking on the Livebox name and modifying it directly. This can be useful for organizing your networks or giving them specific names.
And that’s it! You have successfully separated your Wi-Fi bandwidth into different frequencies. Now you can connect your devices to the desired frequency without any difficulties.
