Switch from 5ghz to 2.4ghz

I actually have an Orbi RBR40 with 2 RBR20 Satellites and I'm trying to link my greenie lights to my network. My satellites and phone are both on the 5ghz band. I reset my bulbs and they are blinking fast but as soon as I try to link them it tells me to change to a 2.4ghz network but I see nowhere to do that as both are combined in the Orbi mesh network. (they aren't named differently like other routers are). Anyway, the bulbs won't connect and I get the message to switch to 2.4ghz network. Can anyone tell me how to get it to connect on 2.4? Thank you in advance! Scott.....

Re: Switch from 5ghz to 2.4ghz

 

What Firmware is currently loaded?

Disable the 5Ghz SSID broadcast Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings

There will be a check box there, uncheck it and save settings. Re-check it after you have setup your devices. 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>RBK50 v2.7.0.70(AP Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, RBK853, R7800, R7960P,
EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111

Re: Switch from 5ghz to 2.4ghz

A thousand times thank you! I got mine hooked up and was loving it I tried to add my 2.4 switches. I saw the Telnet fix but didn't want to go that route (yes,a router pun). Found this and now I'm good to go!
