5GHz network disappeared

Hi,

2 weeks ago my 5GHz network disappeared. I've seen similar posts but nothing solved my problem.

I've tried factory reset, and from the router settings, I can see the 5GHz network is on. I'm using Hub 3.

I've tried contacting Virgin many times, and it was impossible.

Thanks.

Re: 5GHz network disappeared

You may be as well refining your Wi-Fi management, it will certainly help keeping track of your Wi-Fi frequencies.

Best done with a cable connected device.

Instructions for Hub 3

Log in to the Hub.

Advanced Settings > Wireless Signal > click ‘Disable Channel Optimization’ > Click ‘Apply Changes’.

Advanced Settings > Wireless > Security > Add 2 to the 2.4GHz Channel name [SSID] > Add 5 to the 5 GHz Channel name [SSID] > Click ‘Apply Changes’

You can leave the passwords the same as they are. 

Log out of the Hub then reboot using this method ...

Switch the Hub off using the small switch on the rear of the Hub next to the power cord and pull the PSU plug from the wall socket.

Give it a good 5 minutes put the plug back in and switch the Hub back on.

Allow the Hub a few minutes to fully restart then try your Wi-Fi again.

You will need to reconnect all you Wi-Fi devices some will want to connect to 5Ghz and some to 2.4GHz and some will connect to either.

When you connect the devices do it at the furthest point from the Hub that the device will be used.

2.4GHz is a stronger signal but slower than 5GHz so if you have problems on 5GHz change to 2.4GHz.

Re: 5GHz network disappeared

It's possible it has combined with the 2.4Ghz band. Split the band names and you can differentiate between the two and connect to the one you want.

Login to the hubs admin page and go to the wireless tab and change the names of the bands to different names
