   "AC1750" is a speed, not a model number.  Ever helpful, Netgear
product packaging emphasizes speeds like "ACxxxx", but that's not the
model identifier.  Look at the product label.  I'll assume that this is
accurate:

> Model: R6700|Nighthawk AC1750 Smart WiFi Router

(But there may be a hardware version ("vX", where X = 2, 3, ...), too.

   The R6700[vX] is a dual-band wireless router, which means that it has
a 2.4GHz radio and a 5GHz radio, and each of these can have its own
SSID.

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for
"Specify Basic WiFi Settings".

Regardless of the Netgear device you are using, Netgear sets up the wifi SSIDs with anm indication of the speed. netgear15 = 2.4 GHz while  netgear15-5G = 5Ghz

 

Read all about it in the manual for the R6700 somewhere at the end of this link:

 

>>> R6700 | Product | Support | NETGEAR <<<

 

That manual is a bit old, and might not have kept up with recent changes thanks to new firmware.

 

Just another user.
