Hello everyone, so I'm really not good with everything related to internet etc that's why I need your help
I have a device that need wifi to work, but the huge problem that I didn't see coming is that he's not compatible with 5 Ghz and my router of course is 5 Ghz...
Then I had to change some settings of my router, I activated the 2.4 Ghz and desactivated the 5 Ghz but even after all this, my device show "Not compatible with 5 Ghz"
If I changed the 5 Ghz into 2.4 Ghz then why it's still not working? How can I resolve this?
Thanks for reading

Do you have a smartphone that you can test to see if there's a 2.4 ghz connection?I think,therefore i am a hamster.
If your device support only 802.11bgn and not support 802.11a/ac then it should be not a problem for your AP (unless your AP using some weird, very aggressive bandsteering - not in-line with 802.11v - some weird STA blacklisting). I can imagine some misconfiguration on your side so definitely more details is absolute must to solve your issue.
Make & model #s, etc. Not just the router, but the device(s) in question...
Also, routers that support both 2.4 and 5 GHz are not mutually exclusive, IOW, you can use BOTH. I do at my house all the time. They don't conflict or interfere with each other (as they're on diff. freq. ranges, obviously by their name). They are internally connected, so if you have a device on one and a device on the other, the router can be a bridge for these 2 (and also for any wired connected) local networks.
If you tried something and it still said not available, you may not have "applied" the change.
If you continue to have issues, you may need to do a factory reset and start from scratch, or a firmware update, etc.
I have 2 wireless connections (using different names) set up on the router, one for 5GHz and one for 2.4GHz.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord, Snoopy329
I have up to 15 devices in my house from time to time, a mixture of 5GHz and 2.4GHz and hard wired. No conflicts
You need to provide the following information.
Name, make and model number of the Router
Name, make and model number of the DeviceBeyonWiz T3 PVR ~ Popcorn A-500 ~ Samsung ES8000 65" LED TV ~ Windows 7 64bit ~ Yamaha RX-A1070 ~ QnapTS851-4G
So I have a livebox pro v3
and the device is an Advisen IP camera (who work only with 2,4 Ghz)
I installed the required Advisen app on my tablet to make the camera work but when I'm going to conclude the configuration, it show "not compatible with 5 Ghz" and I can do nothing with the cam.
Here is what I have when I changed the 5 Ghz into 2,4 Ghz (this is the livebox settings)

Well... i can only guess due French language but - seem your router (or rather access point) on 5GHz support only a and n mode - this uncommon nowadays and perhaps reason why you can't use 5GHz on your device - i assume your device use ac mode and may not support AP with only a+n mode.
To reduce length of thread - please consider to buy something more modern. Disable wifi in your router and try to connect new AP trough wire - if your router is provided by your ISP then try to set bridge mode without activating wifi. Another option is using wifi extender capable to work in AP mode.
Your livebox is really old and it may be primary source of your problems.
btw due of security WPS should be disabled.
2.4GHz is usually very crowded - try to disable auto channel selection and manually select best channel.
there also other big topic - multicast support over wifi - not all devices support multicasting on wifi - i bet if you hook your camera with cable then it will work.
Sorry for the delay and yes it's been a while, not so long after your answers, I tested the camera in a friend's house with his smartphone and his internet connection.
Basically, the cam worked.
Like Pandy said, I was then forced to change my router (I had to reset the camera too) and after adjusting the settings to have both 2.4/5 Ghz, I re-installed my camera but I got
some troubles again... And I still don't know why.
I tried to install it several times but I still got the "Not compatible with 5 Ghz" message on my tablet, so I tried countless of times again... I even resetted my camera 3 times.
Finally and of course without knowing why, after the 4th resetting, it suddenly worked, the camera connected to my router and it work great AT LAST.
And I hope that it will still continue to work...
