Mesh Point doesn't find the 5Ghz network
It's a strange problem. Mesh Point doesn't find the 5Ghz network of my FastGate modem. My iphone can......my tablet can....
Mesh Point find the 5Ghz network of another Asus router.
I try to configure FastGate in different way: unique SSID, 2 differente SSID (for 2,4 and 5 Ghz), different wifi channels, short SSID name and so on......but the problem remains.
I think wifi is a standard and I don't understand this incompatibility.
Do you have any suggestions?
Hi @mick-layne - are you in a dense WiFi environment with many 5GHz SSID’s?
What channel width are you using on the router?
I experienced this issue often using MeshPoint HD’s with 3rd party routers in congested areas (apartment complex).
Eventually I could find a manual channel configuration that would work, but WiFi is dynamic and the environment might change
Eventually I abandoned the MeshPoints and transitioned to HD Routers in Bridge mode for more reliable access
I still have intermittent issues with Teleport not seeing 5GHz SSID’s on certain channels when all other client devices connect no problem, so it is an ongoing issue for AmpliFi
Hi Derek, thank you for the reply.
No there's only one 5 Ghz SSID: my Asus Router that I'd like to replace with FASTGate (router of my italian ISP: Fastweb).
There are many 2,4Ghz SSID wlan (about 10) instead.
If I can't solve the problem, I believe I will buy Amplifi HD router to replace Asus and I will continue to use FASTGate as a modem only.
