Quick question on a dual band setup (never had a dual band router before.) When setting up the wireless, are you supposed to use the same SSID name on both interfaces or give them separate names? Tried searching forums and wiki but couldn't find anything.

Seeing that they are 2 seperate bands...you can use the same SSID on both.

There should be no interference from 2.4G to 5G bands.

Looking for more test units (newer models) for the project...got a brick?...PM me to make a donation. (USA) A donation is not a debricking service....it is a way to "Give back" to the dd-wrt project.

I do NOT provide personal assistance through chat or phone....so please don't ask.

It might affect the band that gets selected by dual band adapters though. If you use different names then it will be easy to tell which band you're connected on.
