I consider myself a reasonably proficient user but this has me beat!
I’m using a Pixel 5a running Android 11. My wifi networks are 5G biased but support 2.4G. I have a bunch of IoT devices connected to the Wifi network that I’m trying to use.
I connect my phone to that network though it connects to it at 5G and I’m unable to force it to connect at 2.4G
I’m using the Samsung SmartThings app. I’ve tried many times to connect to the fridge and failed.
I put the fridge in AP and can see a SMART-DEVFRIDGE or similar wifi network appear on the phone.
The app is unable to find the fridge.
I’ve disabled the cellular modem as that has helped with other devices. I’ve tried another wifi network that’s provided by a different router but that also prefers 5G.
The 2.4G vs 5G may be a red-herring because the SmartThings app isn’t discovering the Fridge even though I’m confident the fridge is in AP mode.
Are there any tricks? I’m beyond wanting this for convenience and it’s become a battle of wills
