    I have a router on one side of my house that is broadcasting 2.4GHz. I have an extender on the other side of the house that is connected to the router with 2.4GHz, but it is broadcasting 5GHz. Both the router and the extender have the same SSID and password. Is this a suitable setup if I want to roam the house on the same network?

    Thanks for the help!

    I actually just disabled 5GHz completly around the house and both the router and the extender are on 2.4 and have the same SSID and password. Is there anything else I need to do to make roaming the house a smooth process?
