    From the hex-net device page

    WiFi Requirements:

    To use the HEX-NET wirelessly, it needs to communicate via 802.11 b/g at 2.4 GHz. This means that for Access Point mode, the client device with the web browser (laptop computer, tablet, etc.) needs to support 802.11 b/g at 2.4 GHz. To use the HEX-NET in Infrastructure mode, both the client device and the router that is connected to the Internet need to support 802.11 b/g at 2.4 GHz. Specifically, 5 GHz WiFi is not supported nor are channels 12 and 13 supported.

    When I first got my HEX-NET it wouldn't connect to my home network on either 2.4GHz or 5GHz - Uwe quickly pointed out that the HEX-NET only looks for 2.4GHz channels that are in the US list but my router was set to use UK 2.4GHz channels and because it had chosen to use channel 13 the HEX-NET couldn't see the WiFi.

    So I now always configure my router to use the US channel list
