Router change - cannot see wifi on printer (Samsung C460W)

We received a new Virgin Router.

Ever since then, we cannot print over WiFi to our Samsung C460W printer. The printer cannot see the network any longer.

Samsung only work on 2.4ghz. I am told the router broadcasts in both 2.4 and 5 at the same time.

Could anyone helps please? [And keep the answer in basic terms please]

Many thanks

Tim

Re: Router change - cannot see wifi on printer (Samsung C460W)

Firstly your printer is probably still trying to connect to the SSID of your old hub. The print will need setting up again, you will have to refer to its manual.

Secondly, as you right say, the Hub3 transmits one SSID for both WiFi bands. What you need to do is login to your hub on 192.168.0.1, go into the settings for WiFi and change the SSID names to something like xxx-2 and xxx-5, you can use the same password. Now set up your printer to contact the xxx-2 SSID.
