Wyze sense hub won't finish setup

It’s good to have modems and routers centralized in one place, such as the basement, as I do. However, it’s a good idea to run a CAT6 cable and simply add a switch to connect your main electronics to it that are most used by you or the household (TV, PC, gaming console, wyze hub, etc.). It’s also not the worst idea to run another CAT6 to the center of your home and add a POE access point for more reliable wifi coverage (or just cascade another router if you have it) and most of your networking needs will be met with no issues.
Also, stay away from **band steering"*, AKA “Smart WIFI”, as per my ISP’s modem/router/ashtray that my ISP forced on me, as it’s a cable company that provides fiber to the home with no ONT [Mod Edit], just a fiber modem that has a forced built-in router that’s not accessible to change settings to your liking. YEAH, I’ve lost my [Mod Edit] on them after the install as their “smart wifi” was not something I was able to disable or their forced router that they wanted a $10 rental fee just to piss me off even more lol… [Mod Edit], I’m probably the only one that does NOT pay that fee as I ripped every department possible within that company while having them disable everything possible on that forced ashtray they provided. I have yet to see a cable modem that supports fiber. So I can’t buy my own even if I wanted to. That needs to end up in a class action eventually because that is [Mod Edit], despite their cheaper price for 1 gigabyte download and 1 gigabyte upload speeds on a very consistent level. The reason I’m still with them

Anywho, if you don’t have [Mod Edit] as your ISP provider and use your own equipment, make sure to disable that junk as soon as possible. It combines 2.4GHz and 5 GHz signals into one SSID, wreaking havoc on all your devices that still require a 2.4 band ONLY in order to operate or even connect too. It’s best to disable and use separate SSIDs, (one for 2.4 and one for 5 GHz), keeping the same password for both in order to simplify things. Just don’t make the password too easy or I will hash-cat you myself lol.

For older sensors that don’t want to reach my hub that’s connected to the switch, I’ve simply used my wyze first gen cams with a USB port on the back and simply used my USB accessory dongle hub thingy? to help get those going. Back in the day before the hub became available along with V2 products, I believe that was the only way you were able to connect any sensors or other wireless accessories available at the time. I’m not sure if you can still buy one, but it does come in handy.
