Welcome everyone to this blog post where we will discuss how to separate your bandwidth into 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. This tutorial aims to help those who are facing difficulties connecting certain products to their Orange Livebox, which only offers a 5 GHz option.
For example, let’s say you have a Wi-Fi camera that you want to connect to your home network, but you’re unable to do so. In that case, we will go directly to the Wi-Fi settings to show you how to switch between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.
First, access your Livebox’s administration page by typing « livebox » followed by a slash in your browser’s search bar. This will take you to the login page where you can enter your password. If you haven’t personalized your password, you can use the first characters of the security key located under your Livebox. Once logged in, navigate to the Wi-Fi settings.
In the Wi-Fi settings, you will see the option to switch between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks. By default, the Livebox may only display the 5 GHz network. To enable the 2.4 GHz network, select the network name and choose the 2.4 GHz option.
After saving the changes, you may need to reconfigure your Wi-Fi devices to connect to the newly created network. Some devices might require a new pairing.
Once the changes are saved, you will see both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks displayed in the Wi-Fi settings. You can now connect to the network of your choice by selecting the respective network name and entering the password.
If you want to further customize your network, you can modify the network name directly from the Livebox settings. This can be useful if you want to organize or give a specific name to your network.
That’s it! You have successfully separated your bandwidth into 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks. Now you can enjoy a smoother and more efficient Wi-Fi experience. If you found this tutorial helpful, feel free to give it a thumbs up. Thank you for reading!
