Windows 10: How Do I Access 5 GHz Band On AC1750?
From your screenshot you do have a 5GHz band & it's active, make sure your SSID/Network name is set to the 5GHz name which is your network name with _5GHz at the end. I.e. Yournetworkname_5GHz.
Be nice to all, please?!
Change "Channel Width" on your 5GHz network from Auto to something else, like 80MHz.
Retired from the grind
Both the 2.4 & 5 have to have the same SSID. 2.4 has to be set to 40 and Wireless-b/g/n. 5 has to be set to 80 and Wireless-n/ac. Do not set channels to Auto.
I am using Channel 3 for my 2.4 band and Channels 100, 104, 108, 112 on the EnGenius EAP-1750H Access Point I have.
Rock solid signal and speed of 867, since 1300 is the burst speed, not the band speed.
Very few devices use b now g/n works fine but if you know you don't have anything that connects via b or g , set it to 'n only' as it's much faster and more reliable.
I would also never recommend having the same SSID name for 2.4 and 5ghz , it can cause issues with some devices not knowing which band to connect to....always better to have different SSID.
Agreed, mine clearly states 5G at the end of it`s name.
You seem sometimes to be giving a load of false info
There is NO NECESSITY for the 2.4 and 5 GHZ to have the same or simiar SSID's --you can make them ANYTHING YOU LIKE.
I know people mnake mistakes but posting BLATANTLY INCORRECT info like that helps nobody (and it doesn't enhance your reputation either).
Networking on Windows is complicated enough for the average person -- posting wildly misleading stuff certainly won't help them either.
The simple answer to the OP's question
1) Does the adapter used to logon to the router have 5 GHZ capability.
2) Is the router 5GHZ enabled
3)Some devices need Wifi at 5 GHZ to use Lower channels otherwise won't be seen. (Some Chromecast devices are a case in point).
No point rabbitting on about what hardware you have etc -- the OP needs help with HIS setup --not a NASA type environment.
Exactly, it`s a dual band router
Just set the router to something like this on 5GHZ band - that should enable pretty well all 5GHZ capable devices to access it.
Auto works fine on mine it just happens to have low numbers by default.
Nope, incorrect, you can enter anything as your SSID for both 2.4 & 5GHz bands but there has to be a slight difference for the wifi adapter to 'know' which band to use, this is usually done by adding _5GHz or using a different SSID for the 5GHz band.
You can have either 'sample' for 2.4GHz & 'sample_5Ghz' for 5GHz or 'stand' for 2.4GHz & 'walk' for 5GHz.
It is recommended to change the channel to one which isn't crowded but Auto works for me.
How to display the actual Band (2,4 or 5 GHz) that WLAN is using ?
I have seen some time ago that information, I think using the netsh command, but I can not find it any longer.
when I download my images to a folder and open each one up I get a grey band at the top of each image.You can see the image behind the grey band but obviously i would like to have the whole image clear,the grey band is not there in photoshop.What...
This is my first post here so I'll try doing my best integrating myself here and hope you'll help me to some problems I have to Windows 10 Home edition.
I bought last week a new wonderful laptop Asus ROG G752VY-GC178T. I dislike Asus for...
I've just picked one up, anybody else got one?
I'm just waiting on charging and updates, before I can play.
