Why my Range Extender is unable to detect 5GHz wireless network of my root router?TroubleshootingUpdated 10-16-2017 06:25:14 AMThis Article Applies to:RE580D , RE350K , RE350 , RE590T , RE355 , RE200 , RE450 , RE210 , RE220 , RE380D
A wireless channel determines which operating frequency will be in use. It is not necessary to change 5GHz wireless channel unless if you encounter a problem that your range extender is unable to detect your 5GHz wireless network of your root router during its configuration. The situation happens because of DFS.
To solve the problem efficiently, it’s recommended to change 5GHz wireless channel of your router to band 1, which includes channel 36,40,44,48.
