In need of 2.4ghz

Many moons ago VM Hub had dual frequency.  I think mine now only has a 5ghz.  I seem to recall that this could be altered/added by manually online when you entered an IP address into your search bar. I've entered the IP address on various devices but it doesn't load.  Any ideas, please?

Thanks in advance

If you want to split your Wi-Fi network, instructions on how to do that are in link below, when you have selected Advanced Settings you will also need to select Wireless, Wireless Signal and click on Disable Channel Optimization at the bottom then click on Apply Changes.

If you are using Virgin's Wi-Fi pods don't split your network.

Virgins Wi-Fi pods require the hub's Channel Optimization to be enabled.

Login to the Hub at http://192.168.0.1/ take a look at the Wireless settings, both 2.4GHz and 5 GHz are supported.

Which VM Hub do you have ?
What is ( make / model ) of the device that wish to connect ?
