Open a browser and log into your hub 192.168.0.1 - using the SSID and wifi settings password printed on a sticker on your hub
Then navigate to the following settings so you can differentiate between the signals.
Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal > click on Disable Channel Optimization at the bottom then click on Apply Changes.
Now go to Advanced Settings > Wireless > Security > Edit the end of the 2.4GHz Channel name - For example if it's VMmywifi change it to VMmywifi 2.4
You don't need to edit the name of the 5Ghz connection but if you want to then you could rename it to VMmywifi5 for example
You can leave the passwords the same as they are. Then at the bottom click on Apply Changes. Then log out of the hub at the top of the page.
You will need to reconnect all you Wi-Fi devices again, some will want to connect to 5Ghz and some to 2.4GHz and some will connect to either.
You could also do a search for an app such as wifi analyzer which tells you the strength of the channel you are connected on, and also shows other channels so you can decide if you want to change the channel number on your hub toone that's possibly less congested.
Advanced Settings > Wireless > Wireless Signal > beneath both the 5Ghz and 2.4GHz sections click on the manual button, and in the drop down box click on the channel number you want to change it to, then scroll down and click on Apply Changes.
The hub's now do have a habit of being automatically reset by the VM systems as they are now set up with combined bands which should search for and link to the strogest available signal.
