I recently acquired a Roomba 980 series and have a simple Google WiFi setup with one additional access point in my small home for good coverage. I cannot connect to the Roomba, presumably because it has issues connecting to the simultaneous 2.4 and 5 bands. I have read quite a few posts from "olavrb" and others, none of which have helped me solve the issue. How do I isolate 2.4ghz in order to get this Roomba set up? I've tried going outside where I only have one bar of wifi reception and have tried using a guest network to no avail. Thank you.
Please don't post this link - it's really not helpful.
I just wanted to jump in real fast to see if you saw davidking's reply and to see if you still needed some help on this or if you were able to get it sorted out. If you are still needing some help, just let us know and we'll be happy to continue helping.
Hi to both of you - I think I'm just out of luck on this one - sounds like I have the perfect combination of products that don't function together, unfortunately. Obviously, I think it's annoying that my wifi doesn't address this issue since so many older smart home products are on 2.4 only and so many people use iOs devices but I can't do anything to fix that.
I do have one more thing you can try real fast. Try setting up a guest network. The guest network functionality will keep things at 2.4GHz only and you can set a separate ID and password for it. See if your devices will connect properly in that manner and let me know if that works.
I just wanted to check in real fast to see if you saw my reply and to find out if you still needed any help on this. If you're still needing assistance, please just let me know.
