I'm out of ideas and Google hasn't lead me to an answer. The firmware is the latest version, my laptop has an N adapter, the 5Ghz band is not broadcasting and I even tried manually adding the network SSID. Thank you for letting us know.

Are you sure your laptops have wireless cards that can support 5GHz? I don’t have any smart home stuff using 5G - I have a nest thermostat and 2 nest smoke detectors and a garage door opener on the 2.5G network. Just ask! Are you aware this install is broken? We would like to help you in regards to this situation. Hello @ahdfahf , thank you for your post. If you can list the exact model numbers of the laptops we can look up the specs and see what the wifi will support.
The 5Ghz light is not on on the router and the 2.4 Ghz light is on, 2.4 is working. Try reconnecting your device(s).
There is no logical reason for any ISP to hide the multiple guest account capability that resides in the modem and end up expending manpower having to set these up over the phone. Yikes.. something definately is up.I would reboot the modem to start, may clear it up. Look out for the message in your inbox! Although I grant you that it's kind of crazy to have to make a phone call to set up a guest SSID - and one that lacks any WPA2 security at that.

Here is the instruction link, but it won't do any good as explained above as the user interface does not resemble what is stated in the instructions.

I forgot to note that the 5G network shows up on my other devices such as tablets, phones and AppleTV... Just on the computer it won't show up... it used to... but not anymore.
Most consumer-grade Windows laptops do not... Easy way to tell: if the specs say 802.11b/g/n, then that means 2.4GHz-only. 08:21 PM Thats a little more painful, but it should work. If you left click on the wifi symbol located on the lower right hand corner of your screen, it should bring up all of the local networks, ranked basically by receive power, so both the 2.4 and 5 Ghz networks should be at the top of the list, unless you have a nearby neighbour who is running a wifi router with enough power to put his network at the top of that list. RogersJermaine. I have been using a Shaw Hitron modem/router for a number of years. If the passwords don’t match, change this password to match your 2.4G network password, then select Save Changes. Its a simple procedure that most customers would probably use without any problems. I mentioned this to the Rogers tech support person yesterday when I phoned to create a guest SSID, but they didn't seem that interested in pursuing it. 01-23-2016 However, the signal strength in the basement has never been very strong. I upgraded to HF150 in January a couple mos. 08:00 PM 01:43 PM. In short, the install is broken. Several times a day now, I need to reboot the hitron device to get 5G to come back.

Re: Hitron CGN3ACR missing 2.4G & 5G multiple SSID settings I got an upgraded modem today, the CGN3ACSMR, and I configured it manually. My R7000 has stopped broadcasting the 5g network on all my 5g capable devices. If you wish to create multiple SSIDs click on. 10:45 AM I rebooted the Hitron router and the 5G network names would reappear for a few hours.

Only laptops, phones, tablets, Xbox on 5G. Best thing to do, personal opinion, but a good third party router that will give you better control over functions such as multiple or guest networks. Same problem. Don't know why anyone would decide to take such a simple function and lock out of the users ability to use it. The end device then has a problem connecting to the network that you want to use. 04:02 PM. No WPA-2? For some odd reason I can't seem to find the the secondary or multiple SSID settings in order to enable it.

Look out for the message in your inbox!

Hitron 5GHz WiFi band disappearing each day when used with WiFi Extender. 01-22-2016
So, if you intend to keep using the application, its worth spending the $20 for the newer version, which can read the network headers, even if the wifi card itself can't do 802.11ac. 01:23 PM
I'd call back and force the CSR to look thoroughly at all of the settings. @Almarenco do you noticing the 5 Ghz network disappear when the extender is not connected? What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far? 10:02 AM.
Shortly after setting this up I noticed that my 5 GHz network band name (both my original 5G and 5G_EXT names) would drop from being visible in all Mac & PC devices.
Both iPhone 6, iPhone 5 and Ipad found 5G and non-5G signal, but my wife and my latop could only find the non 5G signal, which is much slower than 5G (only 40Mbs download speed). It’s getting really annoying. Fwiw...... That setup stick has been around in its current form for a long time, my guess would be maybe five years or longer. Hi Lil. So, if you have a CGN3ACR, and you want to use multiple networks, call tech support and ask the CSR to setup the additional networks that you require. I tried 4 hours, did research here and googled, I still couldn't figure out how I can find the 5G signal for my two laptops.. Connect an Ethernet cable from the PC to the modem. Same problem. SPEED shouldnt really be a difference.The max speed for the N between the 2.4 and the 5 are the exact same.The only major difference.. is the 5 has a shorter range.. but while within that range will often have a stronger signal, so less chance of a bad signal between it and the router.As well, you tend to NOT get the same interfearance on the 5 as you do with the 2.4 (from portables, microwaves, etc). by Can't find what you're looking for?

Is there a software refresh available to download? Hi Viven, I suspected my laptop might not supported 5Ghz, as it's more than 3 years old... so does that mean the maximum I can get is 50 Mbs download speed (so far that is what I got from 2.4Ghz wireless connection) cause if that is the case I should call Rogers to reduce from100u to 60, since I would never be able to get more than 50 Mbs download speed? To try to resolve this issue, in January, I purchased a Netgear Nighthawk AC1900 WiFi Range Extender (Model EX700). The 5G shows up on my iPhone, tablet, etc and USED to show up on my laptop, but now its not..

Once that is done, if you disconnect from the 2.4 Ghz network, the laptop should then reconnect to the 5 Ghz network. - last edited on - edited Not overly savvy with networking issues and was wondering if someone could help me out. Also, i would log into the modem after its back up (via something that can connect to it) and change them from the default names (and passwords).
I finally called Shaw support a few weeks ago and they couldn't trouble shoot the problem. Solved! The one is PammieTee and the other is PammieTee-5G. So, every time you want to use it, you have to run the executable from the stick.

To make sure that the laptop is seeing the 5 Ghz network, you can load inSSIDer on your laptop. The router they give us I gather must be absolute **bleep**.
