What is "band steering"

Hi, I was wondering what band steering was and why it is asked to be turned off. Is there any consequences that could come to turning it off and when should you turn it off?


  • If you look at the threads posted here, band steering doesn't seem to be work that well on the Hitron, some devices are being steered/forced to connect on 5Ghz and the signal may be too weak.
    I disabled it BUT I kept the SSID the same, so it's up to the device/client connecting to choose 2.4 or 5Ghz depending on signal strength.
  • this feature is not ready. Use different SSID instead.
