How to choose between 2.4GHz and 5GHz band

Can Eero show options to connect to both bands separately.

In my previous low end router I had the liberty to split the bands and select the desired band from my device. I do not see such option in Eero.

  • No, you can’t split them out into different SSIDs. Your device will choose to connect to one or the other, depending on signal strength.

  • Thank you for your reply  cMoo92

    Is there any way or hack we can choose which band to use. If not I believe this is a really bad feature.

    • What’s the reason you want to have the bands separated?

      cMoo92 I'm with alokmishra. besu as when I run the disable 5GHZ test temporarily I get way better internet speed. Eero offers a temporary solution to a problem but no permanent fix.
