So while looking at my Tplink range extender , which is fine and been working for months. I decided to mess about with things.
I just need reassured lol.
So we have sly fibre and believe it puts out 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz. Now my fire stick likes the 5 ghz . Am i correct in thinking my router is sending out two signals? 2.4 and 5?
Cos i think ive changed something and when looking on my phone i can see two of my sly internet. One sayin 2.4 and one normal. Have i just split my router or have i renamed my tp link 2.4ghz?
At moment its causing me grief but was just curiuos.

Which TP Link do you have? My router gives out 2.4 and 5ghz but shows it only as one name. My TP Link extender (AC1200) which extends both bands but in the setup you can choose to either give each band is own name or the same name as the router. I chose the latter as it stopped the continuous "which one do I use" from my other half. All the devices decide for themselves which bands to use.
