comment
" ...  I recommend configuring another SSID just for the 2.4GHz and connect your Sync module to that SSID. ... Although routers should be able to manage which is the better band for your WiFi devices, some requires some tweaking. ... So it is important that your sync module has good RSSI to the WiFi GW.  ...  "
