How do get my phone to connect to 2.4GHz instead of 5GHz using W31 Router?

Hello all,


I have some household devices which will only connect to 2.4GHz wifi. With most that is not an issue but a few require my phone to be on a 2.4GHz network in order to connect the device to my network. My phone connects to the 5GHz by default. Is there a workaround? I don't see a way to steer my phone to the 2.4GHz side.

Thanks in advance..

cheat. Power off the router. Setup a phones hotspot with the exact same ssid/password as the router. Then connect your phone to that and run through the setup on the device. Once its setup, power off the hotspot and turn the router back on. It should auto-connect to the network
