Half of our smart devices cannot our home network. This includes our WIFI capable most notably our garage door opener and a Toshiba Notebook Computer. When trying to install the network manually the devices stop the process stating the Spectrum Home Network is not secure enough to proceed. Spectrum tried to help but could not recommend solution other than for us to contact the manufacturer for each device.
