If your router supports both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, but only one Wi-Fi name is displayed on the Wi-Fi search page of your mobile phone, perform these steps:
- Go to the Wireless page of the router. (The entry address is usually provided on the label attached to the back of the router).
- Go to the 2.4 GHz setting page, and set the Wi-Fi name (SSID) to xxx-2.4G, where xxx indicates the Wi-Fi name. Save setting.
- Go to the 5 GHz setting page, and set the Wi-Fi name (SSID) to xxx-5G, where xxx indicates the Wi-Fi name. Save setting.
When the preceding settings are complete, the new Wi-Fi names will appear on the Wi-Fi settings page of your mobile phone.
Note: After the Wi-Fi names are changed, you need to reconnect the devices that use this wireless router. The password remains the same if it has not been changed.
