No, there is no as such drawback using the same names for both bands.But device which are close to the router will have a good network and the devices which are far will face bad network.

If you use the same WiFi name for both the Band in Dual-band router then you might get the connectivity issue and the Internet Speed related issue.

  • No there is no drawback in using the same wifi name for both bands, However, the devices which are closer to the router will work fine the devices far from the router may face connectivity issues once in a while as if your devices may not understand which band to connect to because the 2.4 GHz band gives you more strength than 5 GHz.
