    Wifi drops to 2.4


    Hi all,
    I installed win 10 today and all went fine. It found all my programs and settings with one exception: it will not stay at 5G. It drops out and then reconnects to 2.4.
    I have a Belkin wireless adaptor N600 DB. Model F9L1101v2
    I know it is not my adaptor, because it will work just fine on a different computer running win 7 and the modem is working just fine also, so it must be win 10 that is the problem.
    Anyone else have that problem and cot it fixed?
    Thanks
    Sven

    Hi,
    Go to Device manager, right click Wi-Fi adapter, can you find any similarity with my snip? you need to look under Advanced tab in Properties.

    Have you tried this driver?

    My dual band adapter would not connect at all on 5ghz until I installed the manufacturer's driver.

    If the 2.4 ghz signal is stronger I would think the network adapter is probably sensing that and shifting to the stronger signal. If you are not going to use that computer/adapter on 2.4 ghz at all, can you go into the hardware properties and set it for 5 ghz only?

    I think you are correct, the 2.4 signal has 5 bars the 5.0 has only 4 bars.
    that may be the problem. I can not set it to 5.0 only. I guess I have to live with that.
    Thanks
