Two SSID for 2.4GHz and 5GHz
« on: June 14, 2015, 10:10:57 AM »

Just a DIR-868L HW:B1 FW:2.03.
The default settings for WIFI is two SSID for 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
Is there any problem to use one SSID for both frequency?

It's recommended to keep the SSID names different between the two frequencies. Can cause problems for some client HW that can't negotiate the WiFi connections.
Unless the Rev B model has Smart Connect and I'm not sure Smart Connect is available on the Rev B model. SC is available on the DIR-880L and 890L.
