Photon 2 resilience to same SSID in 2.4 and 5GHz


I wonder if the Photon 2 has trouble when users have their router set to the same SSID in both 2.4 and 5GHz frequencies.

Do we know if this scenario is ok for the new device?

There should be no issue with this with the P2/Photon 2.

Actually, even with older devices it works fine with many access points. I have many Photon 1s and Argons on a Ubiquity UniFi network using the same SSID for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz and it works fine.


Hi @gusgonnet

I have both 2.4 and 5GHz networks broadcasting the same SSID and have not had any issues either.
