Just received my new EE Smarthub router through the post, decided to configure it before I switch from BT in a few days so I have no messing around with Wi-Fi issues on the day.
With the EE Smarthub if you switch the Wi-Fi to separate bands you cannot type the name you want for the 5 GHz network, it is automatically prefixed with 5GHz- as you type.
As my whole network is already configured with another name I want to keep as I have about 20 devices connected, here is how to change it:
Open Microsoft Edge
Go to the EE Router admin page
Click Advanced Settings
Click Advanced Wi-Fi
Slide Separate Bands toggle to ON
(If you try to type a new name in the 5 GHz name box 5GHz- is suffixed to the name you typed)
Press f12 key or select ‘F12 Developer Tools’ in the Edge settings menu
Select the Console tab, at the flashing cursor type:
wifi_Z2_input.value=”Your New SSID here“
Now press the Save button that is it.
