Cannot Use Smart Devices Because 2.4GHz and 5GHz Networks Must Have Same SSID.
In short, all of my WIFI smart devices (Wyze Cam and smart plugs) operate only on 2.4GHz. By default, the 5GHz and the 2.4GHz networks have the same SSID. When assigning a different SSID to the 2.4GHz network, I receive the following warning:
Warning:Your 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network names and passwords must match, and both radios must be enabled with WPA2 security setting, to benefit from the enhanced Wi-Fi technology on your device.
Unfortunately, all of my smart devices only see the 5GHz network because of the shared name and don't even try to connect to the 2.4GHz network. Surely I am not the first to have this issue. Would someone be kind enough to offer some insight and guidance on how to resolve this pesky little nuisance?
