[BCAB] Braille Sense: Connecting to EE Wireless Router

Hi Pele,

I don't know the specific router, but a lot of them will let you separate
the two bands.  That is the 2.4G and 5G networks.  So you would have your
SSID followed by a dash and 5G at the end of the 5G network, and just the
SSID for the 2.4G network.  This should solve the problem, as you can then
force the Sense to connect to the 2.4G network.

If you can tell us the router model she has, I'll try to dig a little

All the best

Subject: [BCAB] Braille Sense: Connecting to EE Wireless Router

Hi Everyone

I am asking this question on behalf of a friend who has a Braille Sense
U2 Mini. Since she upgraded her broadband she can no longer connect it to
the wireless router.

I am wondering if her router is using the 5 GHz channel, in which case I
don't think the Braille Sense will connect.

Is there an easy way of finding out which network is being used? I
appreciate this is a difficult question as I don't know what type of router
she is using. It was supplied by EE when they upgraded her broadband.

If anyone can advise me, I would be very grateful.
