force a single device to 5ghz


  • Hello all,

    can anyone give me advice? I am using the amplifi alien router and have set my router to have only 1 ssid with the option band steering turned on.

    however, I also use Google stadia, for that reason I would like to always have my chromecast on the 5 GHz band for better signal.

    is there any way where i still only have 1 ssid with band steering but can only force that chromecast on 5.0 ghz at all times?

    Hi @gijspalts - the recommended solution would be to create a 5 GHz only Additional SSID for the client and take it off of the Common SSID:

    If you have a US Alien model then you also have the option of using the Additional 5 GHz radio
