Setting up a 2.4 Ghz band with access to the home network
I have a printer that uses only 2.4 Ghz WiFi. I am using a Motorola Router BGW210. The rest of the home network can use the 5 Ghz band. My understanding is that for the other devices to use the printer, the printer needs to be on a 2.4 Ghz band with access to the home network.
So that the devices connect to the right band, a requirement is that the two bands have different names. Since all the 5 Ghz devices are using the band named Assassin on my network, I want to have a 2.4 Ghz band with name like Assassin2.4. Both bands need access to the home network, the 5 Ghz also needs access to the internet.
The Smart Home Manager isn't smart enough to handle this, so I think I need to get at the settings for the BGW210 via it's IP address. I think I need to set up something like the Guest Account, except the Guest Account only has access to the Internet (no access to the home network) and my account will have access to the home network and not the internet.
I haven't been able to convince the BGW210 to do that yet with the interface I can use.
Any help will be appreciated.
