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.
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.
