Enhanced Home WiFi utilizes intelligent Access Points that have “Client and Band steering.” Multiple wireless networks do not need to be shown. As a result, this simplifies the process for adding to and monitoring devices on your home network.
Access Points are dual band capable, i.e. they provide Wi-Fi service in both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands simultaneously. That way, 2.4 GHz only or 2.4 and 5 GHz dual band wireless devices can connect to the Wi-Fi network wherever they are.
No, Enhanced Home WiFi units incorporate something called “Band Steering technology” to ensure that every device connects to the network for the best experience possible. This includes forcing older wireless devices to 2.4 GHz so that higher-end/more current dual-band devices do not get negatively impacted and receive slower speeds.
