Device limits on 5G Gateway
Enthusiast - Level 2

Does anyone know of any type of work-around for the 2.4GHz device limit of 10 on the 5G Gateway Router? Verizon limits 10 devices to connect to the 2.4GHz and 30 devices on the 5.0GHz. As many smart home devices use the 2.4GHz, this created issues of the Gateway no longer sending an internet signal when more than 10 devices tried to connect to the 2.4GHz. In the interim, I've given the 2.4 and 5.0 separate ssid and turned of band steering so that I have more control over which devices connect to which freq. That being said, 10 devices is still not enough to operate all the devices within my smart home. Bulbs, cameras, printer, thermostat, and a few other items ALL demand 2.4GHz. Looking for any viable solutions.
