Title: Different SSID for 2.4 and 5 GHz
Post by: canada_guy on December 10, 2018, 07:05:01 PM
I have a new DIR-867 which I am using as an access point (Static IP address and turned off DHCP, connect LAN port to my existing router).
It's running Current Firmware Version: 1.02  Current Firmware Date: 2018-07-09T15:02:42 filename DIR-867_REVA_FIRMWARE_1.02B02.BIN

I'm trying to assign a different SSID to the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, but It doesn't accept it. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

What browser are you using? Try IE11, FF or Opera.

It should accept any SSID value. What value are you using?
Might need a factory reset and set up from scratch...

Thank you for the reply.

I was using Chrome. I'll try a different browser.

I was using the default SSID for the 2.4, but added "5G" (no quotes) for the 5G side.

I'll try again, try a factory reset and report back.
