Welcome everyone to this blog post! Today, I have a little tutorial for you on how to separate your WiFi bandwidth into 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. This is a useful practice because there are certain devices that are only compatible with one or the other.
For example, I have a WiFi camera that I want to connect to my home network, but I’ve been having trouble because my router only offers the 5 GHz option. So, let’s go directly to the WiFi settings and see how we can make the 2.4 GHz option appear.
First, access the administration page of your router. In my case, I have an Orange Livebox, so I open a new tab and type « livebox/ » in the search bar. This takes me to the login page where I enter my password. Once logged in, I navigate to the WiFi settings.
In the WiFi settings, you will see the different networks available. In my case, I only have the 5 GHz option. To create a 2.4 GHz network, select the existing network and choose the 2.4 GHz option. Save the changes and wait for the new network to be created.
Now, you should have two separate WiFi networks: one operating at 2.4 GHz and the other at 5 GHz. You can check this by looking at the available networks on your device.
To connect to the desired network, enter the password and choose the appropriate band. You can also customize the network name if you wish.
And that’s it! Now you can enjoy the benefits of both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz WiFi frequencies. If you found this tutorial helpful, please give it a thumbs up. Thank you for reading, and happy browsing!
