When Using Wired Connection, Teleport Broadcasts on 5ghz Only
Currently using my teleport with a wired connection at the hotel I’m staying at, and I have a device I need to connect to it, but the device doesn’t have a dual band radio in it. The device does not see the Teleport device (even if I try to manually specify the name), so I’m going to assume that the Teleport device only broadcasts on the 5ghz band when connected via Ethernet?
The device in question is a Kindle Oasis, which only has a 2.4ghz radio in it. Also, the max speeds I’m seeing via Ethernet are about 10mb/s up/down. The network I’m on is 100mb/s duplex. Why are the speeds so slow?
This device is slowly becoming DOA for me, especially from a (lack of) speed perspective.
You can change the band it uses... in the AmpliFi app, select your Teleport, and the first option is Wireless band, which you can change between 2.4 and 5 GHz.
@albert-lee Ok cool, didn’t realize that was a toggleable switch since you can’t toggle it when on a wireless guest network, and this is the first time I had a chance to test with a wired connection. Surprisingly, the 2.4ghz network is faster by about 20% which is odd, but I’ll take it. Still quite slow, but I’m getting around 15mb/s up/down on the wired network.
This introduced a new bug though, which is very strange. When I switched from 2.4ghz to 5ghz, it truncated the hotspot name for my Teleport. Prior, it was ‘Jayson Teleport’, and now after switching to 5ghz, it’s now just ‘Jayson’, even if I switch back to 2.4ghz. I’ll try rebooting the device to see if that fixes it, but that’s a strange little bug for sure.
Thanks for the info!
