Optimizing Your Router for Geeni Smart Devices

A Step-by-Step Guide

Are you experiencing connectivity issues with your Geeni smart devices? Many routers today default to the 5GHz band, and some customers face challenges connecting their devices that operate on a 2.4GHz network. Fret not! Here's a simple guide to help you optimize your router settings for seamless integration with Geeni smart products.

Step 1: Access Your Router Configuration Page

1.1 Open your web browser and enter your IP address in the address bar.

1.2 A login window will appear. The default login credentials are typically:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: (either blank or admin)

Step 2: Navigate to Wireless Settings

2.1 Once logged in, locate and click on the "Wireless" or "Wi-Fi Settings" tab.

2.2 Here, you'll find options related to your router's wireless configurations.

Step 3: Create a Dedicated 2.4GHz Network

3.1 Look for an option to set up a new network or modify existing ones.

3.2 Create a separate network for 2.4GHz. You might want to name it differently from your 5GHz network to easily distinguish between the two. Set a unique password.

3.3 Save your changes.

Step 4: Troubleshooting "Band Steering"

4.1 Some routers have a feature called "Band Steering," which prioritizes the 5GHz band. If your router supports this feature, consider turning it off to enable better compatibility with Geeni devices.


  • If you have a "Guest" network option for 2.4GHz, you might find this useful.

Tips: Enhancing Connectivity with WiFi Extenders

  • Standard home routers have device limitations, often around 12 per band. WiFi extenders can significantly increase this capacity, offering better management and range.

  • Connect a WiFi extender using a data cable link for optimal performance.

  • Ensure the 2.4GHz and 5GHz extender networks share the same name and password to simplify the setup.

By following these steps, you'll ensure your Geeni devices seamlessly connect to your network, providing you with the optimal smart home experience. If you encounter any challenges, refer to your router's manual or contact your router manufacturer for additional support.
