RBK50 how do I keep separate passwords for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz through telnet

Hello Orbi friends,

 

I have a RBK50 and two RBW30 connected together to form a mesh system. Due to the evergreen wifi dropouts we've been hearing for a long time, I decided to separate the  2.4 GHz and 5 GHz  (using telnet) . I still couldn't figure out how to keep separate passwords for the two speeds? Anyone out there had any luck to do this using telnet?

Appreciate your feedbacks/experiences!!!

Hello FURRYe38,

 

For some reason, your reply is trimmed in the forum. I checked the other link in your response and unfortunately it doesn't tell anything about changing the passwords.

Well the link is for splitting the single SSID and having each radio have its own SSID and PW. Something that NG doesn't support. The Orbi is based and designed on a use of a single SSID and PW for use with both frequencies.

Thanks, as I mentioned in my initial post I separated the SSIDs, but just want to keep separate passwords for both. I suspect there is some command that we can utilize through telnet to set that, haven't got any luck though!

So nothing in that link about inputting a PWs for each radio?

Maybe there isn't. You might post in that thread and ask...
