2.4GHz Devices


2.4GHz Devices

I have a couple of devices that use 2.4GHz and connect fine with the range extender. The problem I have is that the Cable modem's 2.4GHz radio is horrible and cannot keep a connection going on a permanent basis. Is the range extender able to upconvert the 2.4GHz inputs and sent them out on the 5GHz side if I keep the extender's 2.4GHz output (To the cable modem) off? Don't think the equipment is capable but it does not hurt to ask. Thanks for your time and assistance!!

Hello pipule


Sorry it can not do this it would only extend the 5ghz signal coming from the main router.
