    The Node and NODE 2 do not support dual bands. The NODE 2i will support both the 5 and 2.4 Ghz bands.

    In Help, Diagnostics, select Force Hot Spot and then restart the player to remove and reset your network settings. If problems persist, drop us a note at support@bluesound.com

    Elaborating on the above, can you confirm that 2i generation players (Mini 2i and Flex 2i in my case) support both 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz bands? 

    I have been often told that 2.4 Ghz offer "stronger" (but slower) signal and should therefore be favoured for Bluesound, even if the players theoretically support 5 Ghz as well, would Bluesound agree with that?

    Hi Marc - yes they do...

    We don't disagree with your assertation - I would add that 2.4Ghz travels through walls and around corners better than 5Ghz does... (why perceived as stronger) - In the vast majority cases, the speed difference would not affect sonic performance.
