ok just got new hub 3 changed every thing over to the new hub, problem with my smart plugs cant connect to the new hub is it ok to turn off 5ghz and set them up on 2.4ghz then turn 5ghz back on after i have connected the plugs
Go into the Hub3 settings... (type in http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.100.1 if in modem mode) into your web browser’s url box) and login with settings password on the Hub's base sticker (or your own if you changed it) and in "smart wifi" disable "channel optimisation" - save changes. Then, go to advanced>wireless>security, rename the 2.4 & 5 GHz network ssid's. Just change 'em to whatever you like and something that will differentiate them (e.g - xxxxx2 & xxxxx5) -- use the same password if you like, Then, save/apply settings and restart the Hub. Your 2 wifi networks will now be clearly separated - and you can then select the network you want to connect to individually from the "available networks" list on each device. 5 GHz is usually better and subject to less interference (and is better for iDevices ) than the 2.4 one - although this one has the better "range" and some older/cheaper/dumber devices can only use this one.

You need to give each band their own SSID, otherwise devices may try to reconnect to the other band following any interruption. Plenty of idiots guides on how to do it on the forum if you use the search function. Not checked but Youtube may even have a video?
