I recently bought a Sonos speaker and therefore had to disable "SmartSteering" on my router (T3200M) so I get a 2.4Ghz Wifi.
Initially it didn't even show up (even thought SSID broadcast was enabled). I then eventually was able to connect my phone and computer to it, but it was incredibly slow (like 600kb slow). I disconnected my computer again and then it couldn't be found anymore. This processes repeated itself for several hours. Either it was not there, or if it was and I was able to connect then it was slow or not even working at all.
How can I get a proper and acceptable fast 2.4 wifi?
Also, I live in a 2BR apartment and the router is only 20-30 feet away from my computer/phone.
It was working with Smart Steering enabled? Usually, as long as you have connected to the correct SSID, it should work just fine without Smart Steering enabled; after all, there is no change to the two radios, just how they are shared with your devices.
