All,

So I recently upgraded my router to a Belkin n600 DB router. Set it up, no problem. Only, sometimes the 5GHz band network just disappears. I have tried picking it up on other 5GHz enabled devices, and they don't show it either. Power cycling the router will fix the issue, but I don't want to have to do that every time it does it. Can anyone tell me why it might be doing this? Maybe I have a setting wrong somewhere? Thanks for your advice in advance.

Your Belkin Router might have a similar page setting like this that you can create a separate SSID and password for the 5 Ghz band.

Then it must be the belkin router problem that needs to be RMA'd.

I have switched it out 3 times now...surely there is another solution besides the easy "blame it on the router"?

You mentioned that you have the correct setting for the 5 ghz SSID so it should be working as documented or advertised. Other than looking for a firmware update as the only solution, then its most likely a faulty router in effect.

Nah I said that it was set up with a separate SSID and password, like a second network. There are other options I haven't messed with.
