Do I have 2.4ghz Wi-Fi connection?
AEOT Smart Devices can only be connected to the 2.4 GHz band on Wi-Fi routers or access points (AP).
Please keep in mind:
- All Wi-Fi routers have a 2.4 GHz band.
- Newer routers are often dual-band router, with 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.
- If both of your 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands have the same name (SSID) and password, you will not have any problem connecting your AEOT Smart Home device regardless of which Wi-Fi network band your smartphone is connected to. You do not need to read further.
To find out whether you need to connect to a different Wi-Fi network to set up your AEOT device, go to Settings>Wi-Fi (or Wireless & Networks) on your smartphone.
How many Wi-Fi networks do you see that belong to you?
- I see ONE network: If you only see one Wi-Fi network name that belongs to you, you can proceed with setting up your AEOT device with this Wi-Fi connection. (see IMAGE 1 below).
- I see TWO or more networks: If you see two or more Wi-Fi network names that belong to you, then one may be a 5 GHz band. Please continue reading the article below Image 1.
IMAGE 1, Example of ONE Wi-Fi network: As seen in the iPhone Wi-Fi settings below, this is an example of only one Wi-Fi network name that belongs to the user, "Myhomenetwork." The others (Dark Knight and Snooze) do not belong to the user, and he cannot connect to them as they are password protected.
I have more than one network name that belongs to me. How do I identify my 2.4 GHz band network?
From your smartphone's Wireless settings page, look at the names of your Wi-Fi networks.
- A 2.4 GHz network may have "24G," "2.4," or "24" appended to the end of the network name. For example "Myhomenetwork2.4"
- A 5 GHz network may have "5G" or "5" appended to the end of the network name, for example, "Myhomenetwork5"
IMAGE 2, Example of two Wi-Fi network names: Here is an example where the user has more than one network name that belongs to him. He needs to make sure that he is connected to the 2.4 GHz band to set up his AEOT device:
What about Guest networks or other network names?
If your Internet Service Provider (ISP) set up your network, they may have set one of your network bands as "Guest" or a different name. You may need to log in to your Wi-Fi router to see which name is associated with which Wi-Fi band.
