I have just bought one of these from Harvey Norman's where it was reduced to $120. It has 802.1 AC1200 5 GHz capability so I was going to use it to extend the range of my Spark supplied Huawei HG659b Wifi router that supports both the 2.4 and faster 5 GHz spectrums.
The router works perfectly OK on both spectrums and I have smart TVs, phones, a Windows laptop computer and an Android tablet successfully connected.
However, when I try and set up the Linksys extender it picks up the 2.4 signal only and won't detect the 5 GHz one. I have tried everything I can think of, even moved the extender closer to make sure it's close enough but to no avail. I have checked the router firmware too - it has the latest.
Anyone experience this problem or know what I can do to fix it?
