Technicolor DJA0231 SSID not viewable, WPS not connecting

I have recently upgraded to a Technicolor DJA0231 (HPC Cable). This all worked fine when first connected however today the WIFI connection is viewabel on a number of devices (Apple phones, laptops) but not others Samsung Tablet, printers.

When I search for the SSID on these devices the wifi network is not viewable however it is on a a few devices. I have tried WPS connection from the devices where an SSID is not viewable and no pairing occurs.

I have tried rebooting all devices as well as the modem but wifi network without anyluck. 

When I hardwire laptop to modem and view settings' Broadcast SSID is checked.

Does anyone have any ideas to resolve this issue?

You could try disabling band steering on the modem 2.4 Ghz WiFi band settings. This will result in the 5 GHz band having a different SSID to the 2.4 GHz band.


If the devices only support the 2.4 GHz WiFi band try manually setting 2.4 GHz WiFi channel to one less than 12.
