Now my HP 205 prnter wont connect because its looking for 2.4ghz and it says it only sees 5.
Yes. Seems about 100 times. I did a chat with Cox today and he gave me a number to call since I'm a preferred customer whatever that means. Im calling tommorrow. Ill let you know.
Makes no sense to me either and I've forgotten what the error message explicitly said but it does come back with a message that it does not see 2.4. I have a security camera that also needs 2.4 and it connected successfully and a Dell desktop that connected to 5 so both are available.
Bruce said:If the Panoramic no longer allows you to have 2 separate wireless networks, the Panoramic is doing you no good. Get rid of it.
The COX app does give you the option of choosing 2 separate wireless networks but warns against doing so. As you go further it warns you again that you could mess things up so I backed off from doing so. I'm calling cox tommorrow because I want two separate networks.
I allowed the router to do the sorting but I'd reconnect the connection on the devices and check the settings make sure when u set it up your allowing the connection set up on your computer allows it to choose between the 2 as well *I use mine mainly on PS4 but should be the same I'm imagine when you set up the connection on your PC. Then I'd start checking from there to see if other issues.
Well thought I would chime back in and finish this..... After talking with Cox Tier 1 a nice young lady setup two networks for 2.4 and 5 which satisfied my printer and roomba but didn't help opening closed ports on my other devices. I was then moved to Tier 2 for an hour then sent to Tier 3. Tier 3 guy was didn't understand the closed ports and simply said the gateway has to be messed up.
He went on to say that all the routers in the Cox store are refurbished units and the chance of getting a new one is remote. So off to the store I went for another one and told them the story and I wanted one that works.
After getting it home and hooked up devices started coming on line.... Voila. The bad is that everything i had setup needed resetting again.
Thanks and have a jolly good day.
