Hi all, I'm experiencing something really weird here.

So I got this laptop from work and it was connect through my home router via the 5Ghz band. Whenever it gets connected, my Dyson fan gets disconnected from its 2.4Ghz band. It only resumes online when I connect my laptop via a cable. I have 2 more devices here that are connected through the 5Ghz channel i.e. my mobile and Switch, and a couple more via 2.4.

Totally at a loss here, please let me know what sort of information do I need to share to troubleshoot this?

Router: Dlink DIR882
