Second 5 GHz radio

My 2.4 GHz (2.4GHz b/g/n) is enabled and works fine

My first 5 GHz (5GHz-1 - 2.4GHz b/g/n) is enabled and works fine

My second 5 GHz (5GHz-2 - 2.4GHz b/g/n) is enabled and is not visible from any mobile device. SSID Boradcast is enabled. I tried manual setup without success. Tried changing chanels (149, 153, 157, 161). It worked fine in the past.

 

Model: R8000

Firmware: V1.0.4.52_10.1.67

Re: Second 5 GHz radio

Are you using smart connect? 

Have you tried a simple factory reset and reinstall?

It seems that it started several firmware updates back. I did not pay attention and I did not notice it up until recent firmware update.

I do not use Smart connect. I did not try the reset yet.

Re: Second 5 GHz radio

Netgear added Netgear Armor after veresion 1.0.4.28. Some devices needed a reset and manual reinstall after armor was added. some actually needed to be downgraded. I'd try the reset first. If that doesn't fix it, then try downgrading to the version I mentioned above.
