WiFi Light Bulbs

Tried a cheapo Amazon light bulb a while back to work with my Echo but couldn't get it set up. I think the issue was down to the bulb only working on 2.4ghz wifi - I have the Hub 3 running at 350mbps so any idea what settings I need to change too make this work and will I lose out on any internet speed for other devices?

Re: WiFi Light Bulbs

The Hub3, as shipped by VM, has both the 2.4 & 5 GHz WiFi bands on the same SSID. What you need to do is go into the hub’s settings and give them names like xxx-2 and xxx-5, the password on both can be the same. You can then connect your 2.4 devices to the xxx-2 SSID.
