Wifi, why two SSID ?

F6 Posts: 53 Enthusiast


with Sense I have two SSID (before I never used an "ac" Wifi hotspot, maybe it's normal)

I have a <mySSID> SSID (!!!) and another one <MySSID>_5GHz


Why this second one ?

    Hi F6,


    Quoting @FS_Simo's reply here, SENSE provides two WIFI networks, one running on the 2.4 Ghz band and another at 5 GHz, the 5 GHz should provide a significantly faster connection.

    Why not both on the same SSID?

    Because if your device can see both 2.4 and 5, then it is easier to connect to the right one.
