Can't set separate SSIDs for 2.4GHz and 5GHz on Arcadyan KVD21 5G Gateway?

All the T Mobile pages show a web GUI with “WiFi Networks” where you can (supposedly) set a combined SSID for both bands, OR, set different SSIDs for each band. My web GUI doesn’t, nor the T Mobile Internet app…

Luckily for my home automation devices, everything is connecting via 2.4GHz. Everything. Even the 5GHz enabled devices.

Is the ability to set this considered “advanced settings” that “aren’t included with this web GUI release”?

Mine has it. I did it on the web. It initially wouldn't connect to 5ghz but it eventually started working. Maybe there's an update.

It should be there in the GUI.  It’s one of the very few configurations you can do.

 

Maybe the manual, page 13, may help.  First, you must log into the GUI using admin credentials, as mentioned on page 12.

Thanks for the responses, I guess patience is still a virtue. Went back to the web gui and the option now showed up. I was able to mange the Wi-Fi networks and split them. DL speed jumped from 45Mbps to over 250Mbps on the 5GHz band. Noice. Thanks again!

I can confirm that the same happened to me. Initially the whole section “Wi-Fi networks” was missing from Home screen on the web app. Next day after setup it just showed up. Using Arcadyan KVD21, firmware 1.00.12, UI version v1.7.0.

So weird - I just set mine up (version 1.00.12) and no wifi or admin login…

Hopefully it’ll just magically appear?
