To set the 2.4GHz band on your router, you'll need to access the router's web-based setup page. Here are the general steps to follow:

  1. Connect to your router's network either via wireless or by connecting an Ethernet cable from your computer to one of the router's LAN ports.

  2. Open a web browser and enter your router's IP address into the address bar. This is typically located on the router itself or in the documentation that came with it, but if you're not sure what it is, you can try searching online for the default IP address for your specific router model.

  3. Enter the username and password to access the router's setup page. If you haven't changed these from the defaults, you can typically find them in the router's documentation.

  4. Once you're logged in, navigate to the wireless settings page. This may be located under a section called "Wireless" or "Wi-Fi," or it may be in a submenu under the "Advanced" or "Settings" sections.

  5. Look for a section labeled "Wireless Mode" or "Wi-Fi Mode." From here, you can select the 2.4GHz band.

  6. Save the changes and restart your router for the changes to take effect.

Note that the steps may vary depending on the router model you have, refer to the manufacturer instruction before making changes.
