Smartconnect on C7800?

Is there a way to use SmartConnect on the C7800 Router/modem?  I don't see it in the config screen when I log into the router.

 

I have manually set both the 2.4 and 5 netowrks to the same SSID.  Should I expect any unexpected side effects of that?

 

Thanks,

the C7800 doesn't have smart connection. 

You can set them with the same ssid but devices won't roam between the 2 bands. 

I'd seperate them out (different ssids) so you can choose which band to connect devices to. For example media streamers, gaming, etc need more bandwidth and should be on the 5ghz. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->
