2.4 band dropping with 2 ssids



New hear and might be a simple answer.


But I have just set a second ssid recently on my bright box 2 and while all worked well when I first did it, I now have an issue where the 2.4 band is discoverable but will not connect on any device unless I restart the router the 5ghz band is fine on all devices.


Some info about the setup for both


Modes available are b-g-n

Channel auto

Extension channel below

Bandwidth 20/40MHZ

Cipher suite auto

Vlan binding default vlan 2 for 2ssid


Any help is appreciated 🙂 and thanks in advance

Re: 2.4 band dropping with 2 ssids

Is that a 2nd pair of SSIDs or just a 2nd on the 2.4 GHz band?
