A wireless network is a type of computer network that uses wireless data connections for connecting network nodes. Wireless networks are generally implemented and administered using radio communication. Linksys Dual-Band routers provide you with an option to set up your wireless network using either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency bands or both. If you want to connect to a 5 GHz network then you can check your laptop’s documentation if its wireless adapter is capable of connecting to a 5 GHz wireless network or not.
This Linksys Tech Support article will guide you to manually set the wireless network of your Linksys Dual-Band router:
Follow these steps:
- Firstly, access the router’s web-based setup page.
- Click on the Wireless tab.
- Under the Basic Wireless Settings option, select the Manual box.
- Now, select a Wireless Band (select either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band) and a Network Mode.
- For the Linksys Wi-Fi routers, you may enable either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band, or both by setting the Network Mode to your desired standard (i.e. mixed, Wireless-N only, etc.).
- Enter a Network Name (SSID).
- For Network Mode select Mixed or Wireless-N only, and then select Auto on the Channel Width option. Channel Width is automatically set to 20 MHz only.
- Select a Wireless Channel from the drop-down list.
- Set the SSID Broadcast to Enabled to broadcast your 2.4 and 5 GHz networks.
- Click on Save Settings to apply changes.
Linksys Tech Support wants to inform you that you can also change your wireless network’s name and password using the Linksys Connect Software.
