How to split 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network on a TP-Link Dual Router?

Modified on Wed, 13 Jul 2022 at 12:44 AM

By default, the TP-Link router Wi-Fi names (SSID) for the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands are the same. To distinguish the SSIDs for the two bands, follow these steps:


1. In the lower-right corner of the page, click Setting.

2. Click Wireless .


3. In the 2.4G Wireless area, set SSID to (XXX)-2.4G , where xxx indicates the Wi-Fi name. Saving setting.


4. In the 5G Wireless area, set SSID to (XXX)-5G , where xxx indicates the Wi-Fi name. Saving 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.
