Bit of a weird one and before I reset the HUB4 to factory, was wondering if anyone had same issue?
I have 2 SSIDs respectively for 2.4 and 5.0 networks as follows (X replaces exact name)
I'm running it with 2 SSIDs for a reason that some parts of home I'm getting lesser coverage with 5.0 and some devices connecting to 2.4 automatically as they sense signal of 5.0 is lower which is undesirable.
Now, when I restart my HUB4, the SSID of 2.4 changes to this:
The "-2.4" part of SSID is removed for some reason, and obvs, those devices that were connecting to it won't connect so I have to go back to admin and change SSID to XXXX-XXXX-2.4.
SSID of 5.0 stays as it should be after restart, only SSID for 2.4 change, do you happen to know why is it doing it? is it a bug?
dont know of that issue or whether its a bug - it likely is - the hub3 and 4 have issues with the wifi settings - try turning wifi off and its likely to come back of its own accord or show as off and you can still connect to it
firmware updates happen as and when - bugs can be forever - if you have found a situation that works then use it - if the 2.4 band stays without the 2.4 on the end of whatever ssid you choose then use that
There's been a range of oddities newly introduced to previously functioning wifi through VM firmware changes. Maybe time to consider investing in your own mesh wifi or router setup? Not only will the underlying performance be better than the pound shop router built into the hubs, but if you run the hub in modem mode, your wifi will be completely isolated from any unrequested and possibly unintended changes or faults rolled out by VM.
