This seems to be the only thread discussing the new Smartthings wifi, so I will put some new comments here. Have installed this in a two story condo. The hope was that I could use the new ST Wifi to eliminate two devices from my setup - the wifi router and my original ST hub. So far, the answer has been “no,” although I haven’t lost hope.
In spite of hours on the phone with Comcast and Samsung, it doesn’t seem that the new ST Wifi device can take the internet from a pure “modem” (in this case a brand new Netgear CM500), and act as the only “router” for the setup. Interestingly, the old Apple Airport can take the signal from the CM500 modem and work perfectly, but the ST Wifi says “can’t connect to the internet” and tries to get me to do static IP or PPPoE (which is never going to happen with a Comcast home connection). The ST Wifi, however, works just fine if I plug it into the old Apple Airport. Still have open ticket with escalation team at Samsung. Hard to believe I’m the first person to have this issue. Anyone else?
On the “hub” front, the new ST Wifi requires the new ST app. I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get the new app to “exclude” all my devices that are currently attached to the old (original) hub. There really isn’t an area in the new app to do this. So can’t get rid of my old ST hub either.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. But mainly wanted some of this info out there for others to see. Thanks to all for the help with my past questions.
