Why won't the 2.4 Ghz wifi allow security devices and smart bulbs to stay connected?

Re: 4G LTE 2.4 will not allow devices to stay connected

I've been experiencing a similar problem with my "hotspot".  Well after tens of hours of troubleshooting, on hold, doing research... it turns out that it's a slow data connection.

Have you tried checking the speed of the network while your having problems?  Try FCC speed test, which is a free app available at your app store.  I've found it helpful for a variety of reason but most importantly, it confirmed that I wasn't getting anywhere near the 4G LTE speed that I have been paying for.  

I'd love to hear what you find out.  Unfortunately, you may be unpleasantly surprised.
