temporarily disable 5Ghz on Askey mesh

Hi

I need to connect an IoT device (an RM pro) to my new Askey wireless mesh. Currently, my mesh network is working fine and set up without any changes to the default configuration.

However, my IoT device cannot log onto the mesh network.

My IoT device manual explains that if my router offers both 5GHz and 2.4Ghz (and the user can't log in) I should temporarily switch off the 5GHz network, connect the IoT to the 2.4 GHz network, then resume using the 5Ghz network. The rationale is the issue may be caused by a compatibility issue with wifi modes if SmartConfig is used.

Please advise how to perform this procedure using Askey mesh. I have logged into the askey via the web browser interface but I cannot locate how to temporarily switch off 5GHz.
Any other ideas on how to connect a 2.4 GHz IoT device to the mesh would be appreciated too!

Hopefully they also give you the free AC Plus wireless router. Use that with your IOT devices.

seems like the offical singtel support has gone MIA.

Does anyone has the latest firmware for 4930? Pls PM me.

I figured out how to connect it up to my mesh network; the issue was with authentication.

To make it work, I needed to set up a standard WiFi router on the 2.4 GHz channel using the same SSID and password as my mesh. Once it had Authenticated and connected to that WiFi, I was in able to connect to my mesh.

Nice workaround.

Good to know! WiFi extenders do require more upfront time to configure and setup, but aren't replacing your existing network so you can keep your existing router.

Nice workaround.
On average, mesh networks can cost as much as $300, whereas a good WiFi extender can cost as little as $50.Right?
