Laserjet 100 color MFP M175nw won't connect to Channel Optimised Router

Hi, I assume this older printer isn't capable of connecting to an optimised wi-fi signal (where 2.4 & 5 G Hz ranges are combined), only the 2.4 G Hz on it's own. Or is their a way of modifying the Wireless mode (currently on 802.11b/g/n Mixed) without messing with other devices liek SKY that are happily grabbing the 2.4 signal from the Optimised signal.

@Baseliner, Welcome to HP Support Community!


The printer cannot connect to a combined network. You need to have separate SSIDs for both the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz network. 


Contact your ISP to give them separate names and then connect the printer to the 2.4GHz network.


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
