What is the problem?
My Raspberry Pi is set up in a room at the end of my house. The Printer is out of reach of the 5GHz network so I set it up on my 2.4GHz network wavelength. The Pi has no issue connecting to my network, that works fine. BUT it will not communicate with other devices on the same wavelength. If my laptop is connected to the 2.4 network it tells me that the pi cannot be reached, as soon as I change my network to the 5GHz network, BOOM, it works and I can access my Pi.
I would like to set up an old phone as a camera and an old tablet just for monitoring but since they are older and run on 2.4 they can not communicate with the Pi. I can not set up a LAN cable because of the way my apartment is built and laid out, I have tried.
It previously worked no matter what wavelength the other device was on, but not anymore. Is there a setting that got fiddled?
What did you already try to solve it?
- I have reset my Pi and set it up from the start
- I have tried putting the other devices on 5GHz (This works, but the devices I want to use are too old and don't support it)
- I wanted to put my Pi on 5Ghz but it is out of range.
