Okay, I’m not sure how to explain the dilemma I’m in, but I’ll try my best. So I have two access points from the router – let’s call it ABC &. ABC-5GHZ. ABC being 2.4 and ABC-5GHZ being 5. Usually all my homekit and homebridge devices were connected through their native applications via 2.4, the usual configuration. My phone connects to ABC, and the home app has accessories that extract the data. One day, I restarted my router and all the accessories were displayed offline. I tried the steps below: – Delete all from the homekit. – wipe home from the homekit. – disable iCloud Homekit. – Reset accessories to factory defaults in their native applications. – while connected to ABC, I can view the accessories on the homekit when I click on “add accessory”, but I can’t add them. – I’m trying to create a new house in my wife’s house and add accessories and she’s successful (connected to ABC). I’m deleting them again because I want the configuration on my iPhone. Now, here it gets interesting, – now I connect to my iPhone at ABC-5GHZ and I can add accessories, which is very strange, because all devices are connected to 2.4 and not to 5. And in my wife’s phone it connects to 2.4, but 5 ghz in mine. Now, all the devices under me, the iPads, the MacBook have to connect to 5 ghz to work homekit. 2.4 makes it a remote connection. – I even reset the network connection in iOS and continued the same. Due to this, the whole ecosystem is such a mess and my LG TV added through the homebridge can be turned on from homekit, but nothing else beyond that, no volume control, no shutdown, nothing. How can I solve this. My iPhone thinks or acts differently from the network after restarting the router.
