I have a linksys WRT400N which created two SSIDs. One is linksys, which is configured to use the 2.4GHz band, and linksys_media which is supposed to use the 5GHz band.
My connection speeds are totally fine, but nonetheless I would like to specifically assign my soundbridge and my roku video player to the 5GHz SSID. At this point I don't know if it's being used at all.
linksys_media has its own config on the router, and I have a password set for it. But it doesn't appear to broadcast itself, and if I try to attach to it by name it fails.
I realize this is a question for linksys but I've found almost nothing on this topic and was wondering if any roku users were using this feature or had any suggestions.
People would have a lot less problems with their Roku, or pick whatever other internet requiring video player you want, if they set up their router and modem behind the TV.
I am not sure why everyone has their computer, which requires the least amount of feed from the router, directly connected, while all the video players require a huge feed, and need the most stable connection, are sitting 50, 60 feet across the house and relying on a constant stable speed feed.
5gig is the n band, 2.4 is the g band. Most wireless devices are G and as far as I know N isn't locked down yet spec wise. You'll simply have to rely on G.
My Roku and router are not in the same room. Is there any way to runna speed test on my Roku player to see how fast it is actually working?
