How to

Turn on 5 GHz Wi-Fi

5 GHz Wi-Fi supports faster data speeds than 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi but has a shorter range. If your Wi-Fi signal has unobstructed access from your router to your connected device, and won't need to penetrate walls, it may be an advantage to connect to your router using 5 GHz Wi-Fi. Remember, you need to establish a connection to the router web interface.

Connect to 5 GHz Wi-Fi only

To use 5 GHz Wi-Fi only, connect to the 5 GHz Wi-Fi network.
By default, your router's 5 GHz Wi-Fi is named with "5G" as part of the name. See how to establish a connection to a Wi-Fi network.
