Two Wifi Networks

Hi there,


We currently have two wifi connections. One with our name and then our name with the number 5 at the end of it.

I was just wondering why we have both connections and what this means? 

How do I delete one of the connections so that we only have one wifi to connect to?

Don't quote me, but the "5" should be the 5 ghz channel . The one without will be the 2.4ghz channel.

The -5 is the faster ghz wifi band and the one you'd want to connect to for better performance.

You can log into the modem and make the 2 wifi the same name but you may find your device sticks to the lower speed 2.4g wifi

MrMom is correct.

Also some older devices will not be able to access the 5Ghz one due to the hardware inside them :-)
