My router can have different SSIDs for 2.4 and 5 GHz and I'm not sure if it's better to have the same SSID or not.
Initially I put the same network but I got confused when the MacBook Pro displayed me two networks with the same name, an I was not able to distinguish between then.
So the next step was to configure two networks, "home" and "home-slow".
I would like to know what are the pros/cons for these configs.
Note, I do have a Cisco E4200 router, configured:
- 5GHz – SSID "home" – Mixed – Auto 20 MHz/40MHz – Auto-DFS
- 2.4GHz – SSID "home-slow" – Mixed – Auto 20 MHz/40MHz – Auto
Note, iPhone4 and HTC Desire HD do not see the 5GHz network, only the 2.4 one, not sure why. MacBook Pro seems to detect both of them.
