In my case I have 1 node sat next to my "entertainment" area... I swear the thing is just trying to annoy me and sets the other 2 nodes to 5ghz and puts the 1 I want to be 5ghz at 2.4!
Be really nice within the bounds of the meshing to be able to pick which node broadcasts what.
I only live in a small house with no more than 10m between nodes... you'd think getting -14db @0.0m on the node I want... it would chuck it onto 5... but no it would rather clog up the 2.4 channels instead and move at a poxy 130mbps instead of the 350mbps I occaisionally get when the node pulls it's finger out.
Does it show this is 00:40am and I'm losing the will!

Hi, Pettal! We'd like to look into this further, was it working fine before? Make sure that your Velop is running the latest firmware. Is this true also to the wired connection? You may try to run the channel finder by following this link, and see if it will make any changes at all.

Thanks, help is appreciated!
Latest firmware already installed.
The only Velop node that is wired is the one attached to the router, I have no others connected to ethernet in any way. Here's what I've tried:
I suppose the next step is to reset them all and re-deploy... loathed to do that as it takes 30mins and it's a pain in the proverbial.
Any ideas welcomed!

Quick update, re-deployed from reset I now have 2 nodes on 5ghz and both are the furthest away... although closest is 5.2m @-61db, and next is 5.8m @-64db... showing between (as it jumps) 350mbps - 1560mbps potential throughput but actual is closer to 160-190mbps in bridge mode. Re-started the system several times, done channel scan until my iphone is out of battery and it is still sticking the majority of signals out @2.4ghz, I can see 6 wifi signals on the wifi scanner that are from the Velop and all on 2.4ghz, with 1 lonely signal on 5ghz... again that's the master and wired directly into the 1Gbps router/modem.

Noted. As of this moment, we don't have an option yet to manually choose which node to broadcasts between the 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz network. However, we'll relay this feedback to our product development team for future improvements of the system. Stay tuned for more updates.
