to connect via wi-fi - you need to find your network in the list of available wi-fi networks and connect to it. If the router is reset to factory settings, then the name of the wi-fi network and the password for it you can find from the bottom on the sticker of the router.

8. The next step is Wi-Fi settings. Since the router is dual-band, it is necessary to configure two Wi-Fi networks: "Wireless mode - 2.4 GHz" and "Wireless mode - 5 GHz".

In the menu on the left, select the "Wireless - 2.4 GHz" section.

In the "Wireless network name" field, enter the name of your wireless network (you can choose any name). Then click the "Save" button.

Then click the "Save" button at the bottom of the page.

10. Now we need to set up a 5GHz Wi-Fi network. To do this, in the menu on the left, select the section "Wireless mode - 5 GHz".

In the "Wireless network name" field, enter the name of your wireless network (you can choose any name). Then click the "Save" button.

We recommend that the 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks either be called different names, or leave the “_5G” mark in the name of the network operating at the 5GHz frequency. This is necessary in order to separate the networks and have an understanding of what frequency you are currently connected to.

11. Next, in the "Wireless Mode - 5 GHz" section, you must select the "Wireless Network Security" subsection. In the "Wireless Password" field, you can enter the password that you would like to have from your Wi-Fi network.

We recommend that you use the same password for the 5 GHz frequency as the password for the 2.4 GHz network to avoid confusion.

12. Setting up remote access may be needed in different situations. Our technical support specialists ask users to set up remote access to perform a complete diagnostic, as well as to be able to remotely change router settings, manage connected devices, reboot the router etc.

You need to open the "System Tools" - "Administrator" section.

In the "Service settings" block, put a mark in the "Remote control" section, and next to it, indicate ip - 10.82.200.40 (For clients: Stepyanka, Drazhnya, Uruchcha, Kopischi) and 10.77.43.43 (For clients: Malinovka, Brilevichi) and press the button "Save".

Important!

Why can't the device see the 5GHz network?

1. This is possible when your device does not support operation at this frequency. You can find out on the manufacturer's website or on catalog.onliner.by.

If it is a laptop or a computer, then you can solve this problem by purchasing an external wifi module. In the case of a phone (or tablet), unfortunately, this will only be solved by purchasing a new gadget that supports the “ac” standard.

2. This is also possible if your router automatically selects the channel on which your device cannot work (usually for xiaomi routers).

You need to reboot the router. If it does not help, change the data transmission channel manually.
