My Airport Extreme has internet options set to Link-Local only which looks to be using IPv4. Should it be set to Automatically so that IPv6 can be used?
If you want to force it to 5 GHz, you will need to name it differently than your 2.4 GHz wireless name, if they are named the same, the wireless device will choose what it wants.
The other question is, can your Panasonic TV receive 5 GHz WiFi signals?
Could set it to Automatic, so when Shaw starts giving us IPv6 addresses, it can use them,
Right now Shaw is not giving the cable internet customers IPv6 addresses, I have to use a tunnel to get IPv6
Thanks kevinds, I will set it to Automatic, then it will be ready. I don't think I need to tinker with Tunnel for now.
I am having a problem getting my Panasonic HD TV to connect to the AE using the 5 gHz network, it works fine on the 2.4 gHz and the TV shows its getting a strong signal from both networks. Both networks are set to use the same name and password. But the TV says that it is unable to make the 5 gHz connection. Any suggestions? Maybe I should post this as a separate question.
The TV is supposed to be able to handle both according to the specs. When it does a connections search, it finds both network signals and I'm supposed to be able to select the one I want it to use. However I think I will try setting a different name for the 5 gHz signal and see if that helps. Thanks for the help.
I tried the 5 gHz with a different name and it appeared to be working but faltered and failed. I checked the signal strength using Airport Utility and found the signal from the TV on the 5 gHz band was much weaker (although still rated good) than the 2 gHz band (rated excellent). So I don't know why the difference, it may be a problem with the Wireless LAN Adapter or the TV itself. On the other hand there may be some other interference in the house or externally. Anyway, it is working OK on 2 gHz, I just think it could be better on 5. Thanks again for your help.
2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz are very far apart spectrum wise, could be something interfering, or the WiFi chip/antenna is better at 2.4.
If it is working, that is what counts
