Change Norton Core network band settings

Smart SSID in Norton Core broadcasts your wireless network on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands simultaneously. You can change these default settings to create a different wireless network for each band. Norton Core then broadcasts the two wireless networks using different channels and automatically selects the broadcast channel.

To change general settings, see Change your wireless network name and password.

Change the network band settings

  1. Launch the Norton Core app.

  2. On the top-left corner, tap the menu icon.

  3. Tap Settings > Wireless.

  4. In the Use the same network name for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz row, slide the switch to off.

    Norton Core automatically adds _5 towards the end of the 5 GHz network name to differentiate the two wireless networks.

  5. For each network, do the following:

    • Tap the arrow next to the network name and tap Advanced Settings.

    • Under Channel, select your broadcast channel.

      If you do not want to broadcast your wireless network, slide the Broadcast option to off.

    • Verify the wireless network settings and tap Save.
