Welcome to all for this blog post! Today, I will guide you through a tutorial on how to separate your wifi bandwidth into 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. This tutorial is especially useful for those who have products that are only compatible with one of these frequencies.
For example, let’s say you have a wifi camera that you want to connect to your home network. However, you are facing difficulties because your wifi network is currently set to 5 GHz only. Don’t worry, I will show you how to change that.
First, go to your wifi settings. On my livebox, I clicked on the network bandwidth option and noticed that it was set to 5 GHz. The goal is to make the 2.4 GHz option appear in the list of available networks. Currently, my livebox only offers the 5 GHz option, so I need to access the livebox administration page.
To access the administration page, open a new tab in your web browser and type « livebox » followed by a slash. This will take you to the login page. Enter either the first characters of your security key (located under your livebox) or your personalized password if you have already set one. Once logged in, you will see the livebox administration page.
Navigate to the wifi settings section. Here, you will find the option to modify your wifi networks. Click on the network name that corresponds to your livebox (in my case, livebox 4 b 16) to access the network management page. On this page, you can see that there is only one network available, which is set to both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.
To separate the networks, select the network name and choose the desired frequency (2.4 GHz). Save the changes and wait for the livebox to create the new network. Once completed, you will see two separate networks: livebox b16 (2.4 GHz) and livebox 4b 16,5 juba (5 GHz).
Now, you can connect to the network of your choice by selecting the appropriate network name and entering the password. You also have the option to modify the network name for easier organization.
And there you have it! This tutorial has come to an end. I hope you found it helpful. If you did, please leave a thumbs up. Thank you for reading and happy browsing!
