Genie internet connection

Genie internet connection

I just purchased a Netgear AC 1900 with dula cahnell, 2.5 and 5g channel. I connected my Genie to the internet (wirelessly) by searching for available wifi, choosing the Netgear 5g and it connected.

When I go into the Genie menu, it shows that I am connected to the internet, but does not show what I am actually connected to.

My question is, if I connected to the netgear 5g, can this connection change to another wifi source automatically, or would I manually have to connect to a different wifi source? I want to know that I am and will always be conected to the 5g and this will not change

 

Please advise

Re: Genie internet connection

If you connected to the 5g it will remain on that Wifi, unless you manually change it to the 2.5

Re: Genie internet connection

Yes, I know.  I would like to connect my iPad to the 5G branch of my wifi router. How do I do that?

That's a question for your WiFi Router manufacturer or service provider.  It has nothing to do with DirecTV.
