D-LINK DIR 825: how to connect to 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously

Q: D-LINK DIR 825: how to connect to 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously

I bought a D-link DIR 825 router, having read claims that, on ONE wireless network, it runs 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies SIMULTANEOUSLY, and somehow determines for itself how to apply those frequencies to what I'm trying to achieve on the network.

D-link's own support contact denies that this is possible, which appears to contradict D-link's claims about the DIR 825 and what I have read about the product online. They are saying that, indeed, you can use both frequencies at once, but on DIFFERENT machines, i.e. that a single machine cannot be simultaenously connected to both frequencies.

For the life of me, I can't see how to connect to both frequencies at the same time. When setting the DIR 825 up using the relevant wizards, it treats the 2.4GHz and 5GHz as two separate wireless networks. I can then connect each of my computers to one or the other, but apparently not both.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

A: D-LINK DIR 825: how to connect to 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously

They imply two separate transceiver circuits insted of just one that switches transmitting frequency.
Traffic for the 5GHz will be faster with a separate SSID and transmitter., since you will cut out the delays caused by the transceiver switching frequency and handling the slower 2.4GHz traffic.

Your problem is that the computer's wireless adapter can only connect to one SSID and IP address.
You can set up alternate connections for your wireless adapter using a different SSID and IP address for the separate frequencies and switch back and forth, but this is not what you want.

To connect your computer the way you want you would need to have two wireless adapters on the computer.
Set one up using the 2.4GHz SSID and IP address as a default for general wirless use.

Setup the other one using the 5GHz SSID and IP address.

You would need to then set up routing on your computer so that programs that need to use the 5GHz will connect to it.

I want to upgrade my home network to support HD streaming over Wifi. I am considering getting an 802.11ac router and replacing my laptops Wifi network card with one that supports the new Wifi 802.11ac standard.

On my home network I want to connect a TV set top box to the router over Cat6 but my laptop is the only device that will be connecting over Wifi. I have a Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Wifi card which supports dual stream but only one band: 2.4Ghz.

It looks like my laptop only has two internal antenna cables and for this reason I am thinking I cannot avail of triple stream Wifi-N 450Mb/s + 450Mb/s on a simultaneous dual band N900 router. I am stuck with a theoretical max of 300Mb/s on 2.4Ghz under Wifi-N and/or 866Mb/s on 5Ghz under Wifi-AC.

Here are my questions:

1. If I get a simultaneous dual band router can my laptop stream an HD movie on the 5Ghz band and at the same time download say a Youtube video on the 2.4Ghz band? I ask that because I'd like to get a such a router and preserve every ounce of bandwidth on its 5Ghz band for streaming movies from the set top box to my laptop... not have to share it for web browsing needs.

2. Would it be a better solution, or even possible, to install a third internal antenna in my laptop and get a triple stream 802.11n class Wifi card (such as the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) and Wifi-N Class router OR should I buy an 802.11ac router and get the better bandwidth it offers...

A:Can my Laptop simultaneously connect to a 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz Wifi network?

You can stream HD movies fine at 150Mbps or even less but it depends on how much of the bandwidth is being used by your neighbors. This can be a big problem in some areas. You won't be able to use both frequency's at once.

Finding the best clean channels to use are what matters most on 2.4 GHz, channel bonding comes in handy sometimes but works best when the channels are mostly clear.

5Ghz is better in this respect because hardly anyone is using it so you tend to get all the bandwidth to yourself but the drawback with 5GHz frequency is that it won't go through walls worth a darn so it's really only useful for open area's outdoors or for large rooms.

I'm running the Asus AC66U router and the Asus PCI-e AC66 NIC which usually runs about 877.5-1.1 Gb. I can stream multiple YouTube video's while watching movies although I could also do this using the 2.4GHz frequency at 300Mbps.

I thought I had a double NAT problem, online somewhere it said go into Bridge Mode, CSR said the ISP router is already in that mode.

I have a cable router as my ISP, hooked up to a ASUS router (2.4GHz and 5GHz) for the house. Have 10 devices on the ASUS. On the Cisco ISP router, I got my Desktop computer in port 2 running to my Ethernet port on the back of my computer, and ASUS in port 1 which goes to the blue input port on the ASUS. I turned off the WiFi on the Cisco router.

The question I have is how can I log into my ASUS router when hard-wired into port 2 on the CISCO router.
CISCO is 192.168.0.1 - ASUS is using port one 192.168.0.10, Computer is using port two 192.168.1.194
ASUS is 192.168.1.1 - Can only access this router when connected to it via WiFi.

Well I am connected to both now - the WiFi on the ASUS and hardwired to the CISCO.
I have both routers open. ASUS 192.168.1.1 and Cisco 192.168.0.1
This problem seems to be artificially solved.

My Windows 8.1 laptop, fitted with an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN wireless adapter, suddenly stopped automatically connecting to my router a few months ago. I attempted to connect wirelessly to multiple other routers, all to no avail. My laptop could only connect through an ethernet cable/tethered hotspot. I then moved houses and got the internet set up on a new provider and suddenly my laptop could connect wirelessly again! Sadly, after trying to connect to my university's wi-fi, I found out that the laptop wasn't fixed, it was simply able to connect to my new 5Ghz internet but still had trouble connecting to 2.4Ghz access points.

I've tried everything I can to fix this as my laptop is too vital to my studies for me to be without it even for a short period of time, therefore sending it off for diagnostic and repairs is out of the question for now. So far I have tried:

Installing the latest Windows 8.1 drivers for the card (currently on v.15.14.0.2)
Replacing the wireless card with a new one (same make and model)
A complete, fresh re-installation of Windows 8.1

Running out of ideas on what to try and so turning to the community for help. Even if you're not sure of a fix, determining the problem itself would also be a big help. Thanks much in advance!
 

A:Laptop can't connect to 2.4Ghz frequencies, only 5Ghz frequencies

Try the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.

If that doesn't work then try the latest driver directly from Intel's site.

I have recently acquired a faster USB adapter (NETGEAR N900) for my connection. I have a NETGEAR N600 router. I can choose from 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. My connection runs very well on 2.4Ghz, I have a limit speed of 144Mbps. However, with 5Ghz that limit is 300Mbps, which I thought it was great, but when I switched to 5Ghz I was only getting 54Mbps and weaker signal strength.

2.4 uses one channel, while 5 uses two channels. Could that be the problem? Again, I'm fine with the current 2.4, but I was just curious if there is a way to increase my speed. It's always nice to have faster internet

I thought that 5Ghz would always beat 2.4Ghz hands down on everything apart from distance. With this in mind I set my router to broadcast at 5Ghz and thought that my wifi would be much better as a result,but it wasn't.

I have my router and my PC in the same room a few meters from each other, and while I was using 2.4Ghz I would always get 90% signal strength,but when I changed to 5Ghz instead of my signal getting to 100% it went to 70%? My router is capable of both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz so why is it that 2.4Ghz is better than 5Ghz when I have been told that it should be the other way around?

I was told that microwaves, cordless telephones and other electronic devices use the 2.4Ghz frequency range and this causes intereference and as such causes a loss of signal.

5Ghz I was told is free of other electronic noise so it is much better and you will always get a stronger signal. The one thing which I was told that made 2.4Ghz better than 5Ghz was the fact that legal restrictions on 5Ghz routers meant that the amount of power they could use to output a signal meant they were not so good over long distances, and in some countries it was even illegal to use 5Ghz frequency.

A:2.4Ghz vs 5Ghz puzzle?

The higher the frequency, the more power it takes to emit said frequency in comparison to lower frequencies. If you have a decent router, however, it shouldn't make a difference which band you transmit. Just because the router CAN use the 5GHz band doesn't mean it'll operate best on it.

Hi everyone!

This is my first post here, so apologies if I am not providing the correct/enough information at the outset.

I will be happy to provide as much information and in a timely manner as prompted.

The crux of the issue, is that recently the 2.4ghz and 5ghz connections in my home are only working one at a time. Meaning, I can be connected to 2.4ghz, but am unable to disconnect the same device from 2.4ghz and connect to my 5ghz network if I chose to. This is not a device compatibility thing, as an example I have experienced this on an iPhone XS.

Now, the interesting thing, is that when connected to my 2.4ghz for example, the connection will frequently drop, and then if I select 5ghz, my connection to the internet will be successful.

If I were to go back to 2.4ghz it will not connect.

After a while the 5ghz will drop and I will revert back to 2.4ghz.

It is incredibly obnoxious.

Please help!

It's either a problem with the radio in your router, or a problem with the networking components of your laptop. Borrow a router from a friend and see if the problem continues, if your friend's router works, then the problem is isolated to your router - buy a new one. If your friend's router doesn't work, then it is a problem with your laptop.

I am having an intermittent issue with my Asus RT-AC88U router (purchased about 4 months ago). The issue started about a week ago and there have been no changes I have initiated to the router or my Windows 10 Pro PC.

I noticed it first on my phone when at home, it would connect to WiFi (2.4GHz) just fine but said under the connection that internet was not available. 5GHz and wired connections had internet just fine. Resetting (power cycling) the router did not fix it but sometimes it seemed to fix it's self. Last night I had no WiFi on 2.4 but this morning it's fine. My provider is Comcast but if it was Comcast I think the issue would be on 2.4 and 5.

I contacted Asus via their support chat and the tech. had me change some setting and I figured that fixed it till the problem showed up again a day and a half later.

Has anyone had a similar issue and if so found a fix? Is this a router hardware issue and I should contact Asus for a replacement?

Thanks for the help!!

Especially if I'm not near the router as it then automatically shifts to 2.4GHz due to better signal. The issue is present with any network - not just my home network.

Hello Windows Gurus,

I'm starting to design a 5GHz Wireless Networks that will work together with an 2.4Ghz during the tests and transition phase. In order to keep the same configuration into the clients, we are choosing the same SSID, so we do not have to go one be one and change the machine configuration.

My question is, If there are two WLAN, one with 2.4Ghz and another with 5Ghz with the same SSID, how Windows will choose to which frequency to connect?! To the 2.4Ghz (the default frequency for most APs) or will it try to connect to the 5Ghz (Faster and Less Interference)?!

I also checked and the computers does have Wireless card that works with 5Ghz frequency.

A:Which wireless frequency Windows 7 considers the best? 2.4Ghz / 5Ghz?

Welcome to Seven Forums,

When you said two WLAN, are there 2 WAPs? One operates at 2.4GHz and another one at 5GHz? Perhaps, you're talking about a Dual Band Router that supports both Standards (11n and 11b/g)?

If your Wi-Fi adapters support both and they are configured with a mixed mode then they should be able to connect to the 5GHz band. The wireless mode can also be changed from your router and set it to just '5GHz' if you'd like all the wireless network devices to utilize the 5GHz.
FYI....802.11n supports both 2.4 and 5GHz clients but you must consider 5GHz than the 2.4GHz if you'd like to achieve a great network performance.

Hi,

I have a N600 Wireless Dual Band Router model WNDR3400. My question(s) is that if I connect with a wired cable, will I be connected to the 5ghz and avoid interference with those on the 2.4ghz connection?

For example, I have a wired connection with my Playstation 3 but i believe the Playstation 3 incapable of detecting the 5ghz when I do a wireless scan. Does this mean when I connect with a wired cable with the ps3 I use the 2.4ghz connection with other users and getting interference if they're doing something like streaming?

And finally, if my Laptop is unable to detect the 5.ghz connection does that mean I need some sort of adapter? Or does it have to do something with the settings. Its enabled and is on the default channel.

Hi, I have a netgear WNDR3400 100nar router, dual band, 2.4ghz and 5ghz. I set up 2 connections. On the 2.4ghz I set up a WEP connection with 64 bit encryption for my wireless repeater (WNR2000). On the 5ghz i set up WPA2 for regular use. Unfortunately my computer does not support 5ghz or atleast i dont think it does. My samsung tv picks up the 5ghz so I connected to that, the macbook pro connects to the 5ghz. The other computer I want on the 2.4 ghz with the repeater. Hardlined via ethernet anything and everything works. For some reason 2.4ghz wont connect wirelessly and does not even give me the option to enter the hex key. just says unable to connect. the 2.4 doesn't work on anything (currently the repeater is offline until I can fix this issue). Infact, ignore the repeater info. I think there is a problem with the distribution of the IP addresses. Could they be overlapping between the 2.4 and the 5? The next item on the network (tv) using 5ghz, occupies sequence 2 under the ip address....whatever the default is it would occupy 192.168.1.2. I have reformatted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled network drivers, as much as I could do with the computer itself so I'm assuming it is the router.

I would like to try this because of all the interference from everyone in my small situated neighborhood where my levels of interference on the top floor of my complex get litterally 20+ signals from every house in the neighborhood. By using my handy dandy inSSIDer program I have determined that every single one of these wifi signals are 2.4 Ghz, and therefore I believe that by changing my wifi to a 5Ghz channel I can avoid some of this unwanted interference. If you believe differently please do tell why. Any who, my service provider is Century Link and I know how to access my router and mess with its settings if necessary, however I was wondering if maybe I needed to do something else? Any advice/insight is greatly valued.

What kind of modem are you using? Actiontec C1000A?

What devices are you planning on connecting to it? Note not every modem and devices support the 5GHz band. Your best solution would be to change channels to 1, 6 or 11 for less interference experience. There's quite a few AP here but it doesn't affect my connection at all. Hardly experience any interference.

Have you tried installing the latest Windows 8 drivers for the Intel Centrino 6300?

The latest ones are dated 1-20-13 so they are recently updated and should work for you.

Hi all, this is my first post so I really appreciate all of the help and I can't tell you how much I've benefitted from the things I've read while lurking here over the last few days. Now, on to the show...

I have an HP workstation with a Q35 based mother board that had a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo in it (E6550), and I wanted to put the processor into my new rig, but still want to use the old comp. I have a Cedar Mill core Pentium 4 3.4GHz HT that's also socket 775 and I thought I'd just stick that in the HP since it doesn't need the better processor. Now, when I try to boot the HP, I get a couple of beeps and the fan just goes on overdrive and stays that way until I shut the thing off, but it never boots.

What's weird is that I can stick the Core 2 Duo back in and everything boots up just fine, but the thing just hates on that P4 like no tomorrow. Now I've used the P4 in my new rig just to make sure it wasn't shot, and it works like a charm. It's just in that workstation with the Q35 mother board that I'm getting nowhere. Any thoughts?

Did you go into properties to see if 2.4 ghz & 5 ghz are set to auto? Also are you using 40 mhz Channel Bandwidth with two channels manually set to say 1 & 5 on the router/access point? Also is the router/Access Point that you have still set for 5 ghz?

Hello everyone, i'm just curious. I currently have 2 wifi lines, one normal 2.4 and a 5ghz WIFI. However, my computer, the Aspire Z3-615 on windows 8, isn't able to read the 5ghz WIFI. My network adapter is qualcomm atheros ar956x 5ghz. I've been browsing around the forum, and am pretty sure that my adapter is a single channel, which i guess means it can't read 5g :/ My phones are able to connect, so i'm just wondering if there's any way to make it so that the computer can read 5g? Thanks for the help :-)

I'm currently running Windows 10 Enterprise on my Dell Studio 1555 laptop.
This is not the first time I'm using Windows 10 Enterprise. Before I format my laptop to reinstall a fresh version of Windows 10 Enterprise, I can connect and receive connections from both ethernet and wi-fi simultaneously. However, after I install a fresh version of windows, instead of receiving connections from both ethernet and wi-fi, i only receive connections from ethernet while the status of connection for both is listed as "connected". If I plug out the ethernet cable, the wi-fi connection will be working fine.  I had gone through forums and the possibility of a altered BIOS setting is one of them. If so, how do I fix it in BIOS setup, if not, what are the other options? Please help. Thanks.

A:Connect to ethernet and wi-fi simultaneously

Every version of Windows going back at least to Windows 2000 has supported having multiple network adapters being connected simultaneously.  Try connecting both interfaces and then going to Command Prompt and entering "ipconfig". If you have an IP address on both adapters, they're both connected.  That said, Windows will dynamically choose which interface is more appropriate at any given time, which will almost always be your wired connection unless maybe you have an ancient 100 Mbps wired connection and a fast 802.11ac WiFi connection.  It is very rare for any protocols to be able to support using both interfaces simultaneously for the same traffic.  SMB 3.0 can do this, but that's only used for Windows File Sharing to Windows 8 / Server 2012 or newer hosts.

Up until today I have had 2 computers on my wireless network, an HP desk top and a HP laptop both running Vista. I have a Netgear router. I've never had a problem with accessing the internet. I just purchase a Toshiba laptop with windows 7 giving me a total of 3 computers on the network.
Now I can't get both laptops to access the internet at the same time.
The desktop pc will connect fine with either laptop connected but I'm unable to get both laptops to work simultaneously.
I can get the hp laptop to connect with the other 2 if I connect directly into the router however that configuration does not work if I connect directly with the Toshiba. I hope this is not to confusing.

Basiclly the desktop works no matter what but the 2 laptops will only connect to the internet if the other one of them is turned off.

Any help would be much appreciated

Hello,
I currently connect wirelessly to my work wifi which is the same for other businesses in the same building (office block). We have a wireless printer which I also connect to wirelessly but needs to be only accessible by my team. When I want to print, currently, I have to disconnect from the wifi and connect to the printer then visa versa when i want to go online again.
This is rather annoying and i'm sure there must be a solution. I currently use a macbook air and the printer is a HP Officejet Pro 8610

Use two wireless adapters. The connection to the network with the printer should be a static IP with the Default Gateway and DNS server left blank.

Hi everyone,

I searched the forum for similar topics but couldn't find an exact fit. If I missed some threads please point me into the right direction.

Following setup. For several reasons I have two Netgear routers. One is a router modem, is connected to the internet and creates wireless network 1. The other router sets up wireless network 2 sharing NAS etc. and is not connected to the internet.

The aim is to setup my Win7 laptop in such a way that I can simultaneously connect to both networks. The IPs of the routes and the NAS etc. are already set up separately. So there is no clash in IP numbers. Currently I have to manually switch in the network setting of Win7 to which wireless network I want to be connected.

Is there a way to stay connected to both?

Cheers

A:Connect to 2 wireless networks simultaneously

Why do you need two networks, wireless or otherwise? As long as you can get to all the devices you want, and as long as all devices can see each other and get to the Internet if desired, your best and simplest arrangement is to have just one network.

The first modem/router you describe sounds like a phone system device, perhaps from Verizon or AT&T. It should really be re-configured to run in "bridged" mode, meaning it becomes ONLY A MODEM with its router functions (wired and wireless) disabled.

Then, the probably one LAN ethernet output jack from that first modem/router goes to the WAN input port on your second Netgear router... which is really the device you want to use to support all wired/wirelss devices in your LAN.

The "bridged (modem-only) mode" of the first router facilitates connection to the Internet of your second Netgear router. In other words it's as if your second Netgear router were a combination modem/router... except that the modem portion is being "utilized" from the first Netgear router. And all router functions (both wired and wireless) are allocated only to the second Netgear router, being disabled entirely in the first Netgear box.

So your second Netgear router will actually be the device which sees your ISP's DHCP server and is assigned an Internet IP address. The first modem/router running in "bridged" mode will be completely removed from the diagram, and will not even have a visible IP address to e... Read more

Sorry if this is a n00b question, but FWIW I did search and also I looked through the tutorials on this site - and I Googled for an answer. However, others seem to have different questions or problems. Here is my problem: when I use my wired adapter on my laptop, there is no obvious way for me to keep my wireless connection as well. My goal is to have both going concurrently. While I understand it could introduce routing issues, my goal is to have them running so I can bridge to one or the other using some VMs that I have running. I won't know if that works until I can figure out how to enable wired and wireless simultaneously.

im confused... so if i have this right, you want to be able to use (for instance) your wired connection on the VM and your wireless on your "proper" windows? well thats easily done.... the VM is like a seperate computer, you merely disable the adapter you dont want to use in each machine.... but if you have wired and wireless enabled in windows it will automatically default to wired, (although it will say its connected wirelessly)

Dear Community,

I am trying to get my XPS to connect to my 5 GHz home wifi network because there is far less interference and the speeds are therefore much higher. However, every time I try to connect, Windows 10 gives me the message Unable to connect to this network. The system can see the network but it refuses to connect. Other devices, such as my mobile phones connect to the network with no problem.
Here are my system details:

XPS 15 9550 (Skylake)
Win 10
Dell Wireless 1830 802.11ac Wireless Adapter (version 1.566.0.0)

When I set the same network (same router) to the 2.4 GHz band, the connection works without a problem. It seems that only the 5 GHz band is causing issues. I'm therefore guessing its an issue with the network card. However, I'm sure that it does support 5 GHz networks. Has anyone else encountered similar issues? Are there other drivers I can try?

Hi everyone, I have a Linksys AE6000 Wireless USB adapter in my Laptop and it is 5Ghz enabled. When I first got my laptop it had Windows 8 on it, but before I did anything I reformatted it to Windows 7. Under Windows 7, this wireless adapter connected to my 5Ghz SSID on my router (the 2.4 and 5Ghz SSIDs are different from one another on my router) just fine and I was getting 500Mb/s speed over Wi-Fi. Then, I upgraded laptop to Windows 8.1, where adapter only detects my 2.4Ghz SSID, and now I only get 150Mb/s over Wi-Fi.

What do I do? I have tried reinstalling driver, using Win7 compatibility mode drivers, installing manually without GUI, I have made sure internal card is fully disabled, etc etc...

My specs are as follows:

Intel Core(TM) i7-3632QM Quad-core mobile CPU
8.00GB DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000
AMD Radeon 7670M GPU 2GB
Samsung Evo 120GB SSD
HP ENVY/Pavilion m6
Internal Wi-Fi card - Intel Wireless-N 2230
External USB Wi-Fi - Linksys AE6000
Router - Netgear R6300
Internet Connection - 150Mb/s down , 10 Mb/s up

From what I have read about this, it can't be done when both NIC's are on the same subnet or network. You can change back and forth by enabling or disabling the connections in "change adaptor settings".

If you want to use both connections at the same time you would need to have them on different subnets.

Hello

I recently got the newest NETGEAR router device, the NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router, and I am unable to connect to the 5GHz WiFi it provides on its Tri-band WiFi. I am currently only on its 2.4GHz WIFI, which I assume is lesser than the 5G. I am able to connect to the 5GHz on my smart phone, so I know it exists from the router. I am running a windows 8.1 currently on a desktop on an HP Envy 700-213 Desktop PC.

Edit: My computer supports 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n radio types - which supports 5GHz WiFi
My adapter is a Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter

Any ideas for why I am unable to connect to this WiFi?

A:Unable to connect to 5GHz Wifi on NETGEAR Tri-Band Router

The most likely explanation is that the wifi adapter in your HP Envy 700-213 doesn't support the 5Ghz band.

If you really want to connect at 5Ghz you will need to get a new wifi adapter for your computer.

I am completely puzzled by my PC's behavior for the past 48 hours. I was on windows 10 but it had been hanging up and freezing ever since I installed the anniversary update a few days ago so I reinstalled windows 7. Everything went the way it should, but after I installed it and got the wifi up and working that's when things went south. I connected to my 2.4ghz network with no issues.. proceeded to download the rest of the drivers and software that I needed with no troubles. Then I decided to switch to my 5ghz network for gaming and the second I enter the wpa2 key and it connects to the network, the computer freezes and blue screens without exception. I ran chkdsk, and mem test and everything checked out with no errors. My temps are all very low, and all of he hardware is a year old tops. I have used this exact windows version before with the same boot media and drivers and never had an issue like this. I tried updating the drivers, and using windows 8.1, and windows 10 drivers but the issue persists. It simply won't connect to the 5ghz network without blue screening for some reason. 
If I had to guess I'd say it's the motherboard? But I don't know. Do you guys have any thoughts on this issue? 
Thanks for reading.
