Cannot uniquely name 5GHz wifi on new NBN Smart Modem

Have just newly setup my Telstra Smart Modem after moving back to Telstra for NBN. Logged onto gateway and renamed my 2.4 GHz band - which has in turn also updated the name and password for the 5GHz one - but it's read-only and cannot be changed.  Am I missing something here?  I should be able to uniquely name it no?  My previous setup with another provider had 2 differently named connections.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Cannot uniquely name 5GHz wifi on new NBN Smart Modem

Is band steering enabled, if so they would have to stay the same. When its disabled, you should be able to have unique names for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz
I work for Telstra, but my opinions are my own and not that of Telstras

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
