Switching From 2.4ghz to 5ghz Truncates SSID Name

  • I have a Teleport with the SSID name of ‘Jayson Teleport’. I’ve been doing some testing on wired connections to see which band is faster, 2.4 or 5, and noticed a strange bug.

    When I switched from 2.4 to 5, it truncated my SSID name from ‘Jayson Teleport’ to ‘Jayson’ and thus I had to reconnect ALL of my devices that I travel with. Rebooting the device did not change the name back to ‘Jayson Teleport’. Obviously this is a problem for folks like me who will switch between 2.4 and 5 to see which band is the fastest when I travel.

    It also looks like I’d have to re-pair the Teleport to the Amplifi router in order to change the name back to ‘Jayson Teleport’ which is not something I’m interested in doing.

Looks like your connection to AmpliFi was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
