Allow specification of full SSID name (without hardcoded suffixes)
Please allow specification of full SSID name, without the harcoded "-5G" or "-2G" suffix.
Hi, I have full home automation with 50+ devices, all of which work better on a 2.4GHz band, so I created an additional SSID (I have the Amplifi HD router only), but I can't set the full name because the router always appends the "-2G" at the end of the name. So I'm forced to go through more than 50 devices and manually change the SSID on each one of them. I should not be forced to do that
Agreed. I'll check if there was a deeper technical limitation that made us do this, or if we can just quickly fix it.
Any updates to this?
Anything? Nightmare with a lot of IoT.
Pinging @UBNT-Brett who might have an idea on this or might be able to log this as a feature request...
@jake-kouns I am following up with the team about this right now to see if I can get a progress update.
@ubnt-brett - doesn't AFi let you do this currently? I had the same issue and I have my SSID under Wireless -> General. Then, in the "Additional SSID", I have it enabled with the same SSID and with the "Additional SSID band" set to "Both". I see 3 wifi networks - regular SSID (without the -2G or -5G), one with SSID-2G and one with SSID-5G
All my 2.4GHz devices IOT devices connected automatically to the SSID without the suffixes (since this would auto-detect the 2.4 and 5 bands) without having to reconfigure them. Maybe this is just a work around, but it works for me!
