    disable 2.4ghz network


    is it possible to disable my old 2.4ghz network?

    windows randomly connects me to my old 2.4ghz network instead of my 5ghz network sometimes and it lags like crazy..

    Log into your router and disable the 2,4Ghz SSID broadcast!

    If you don't want to turn the 2.4 off , make sure your system doesn't have the 'connect automatically' tickbox selected on the 2.4 option and tell it to 'forget' that connection.

    First, get the computer to forget your current network:


    • Click the Network icon on the lower right corner of your screen.
    • Click Network settings.
    • Click Manage Wi-Fi settings.
    • Under Manage known networks, click the network you want to delete.
    • Click Forget. The wireless network profile is deleted.


    Next, go into your router and either completely disable the 2.4GHz radio or set the 2.4 and the 5G radios to different SSIDs, maybe the 2.4 can be your guest Wifi...

    Then, on your computer, only join the 5Ghz SSID network.

    The suggestion in the post above to just disable the SSID broadcast of the 2.4Ghz radio will probably not work, your computer will still join it.

    No idea. If this is your own personal computer, and you don't know what it is, then I would delete it.

    Are you running any kind of network management software? Or auto wifi setup?

    Maybe their software is doing something, I have not used it, so I'm not sure.
