Orbi

Is there a way to turn off the 2.4 GHz band or be able to select a channel.

 

Thank you,

Re: Orbi

Using the Orbi web interface, it is possible to:

  • Reduce the transmit power of each WiFi band (2.4G and 5G separately)
  • Stop broadcasting the SSID (each band separately)
  • Select the channel (each band separately)

This is on the Advanced Tab->Advanced Setup->Wireless Setup

 

"Turn off completely".  No.

 

One wonders what the desired result is.  Is there some problem this is supposed to solve?

I love my Orbi.

Re: Orbi

You can disable the SSID broadcast if this is what your need.

You can manually select channels for either radio. Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz. Basic Tab/Wireless settings.
