Iâ??d like to use some smart plugs out in the garage so I can turn the fan and 
vacuum on or off via voice command.   The problem is the wifi router provided 
by my internet provider is a 2.4 ghz/5ghz router which switches between the two 
depending on the speed and signal strength.  The two smart plugs I have require 
2.4ghz. The result is half the time the donâ??t work.
Can I simply plug a 2.4ghz router into the port on the 2.4/5 GHz router, give 
it a name and use that connection in the garage for the smart plugs?   Will the 
2.4/5 router see it simply as another device?
It sure would be nice to not have to walk across the garage to turn on the fan 
or vacuum.
Thanks for any help
