How do I connect to 5ghz wireless band? BT Home Hub 5

  Bailey08787 21:18 08 Apr 2014


I have a Dell XPS 15 9530, which includes Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth

At home I have a BT Home Hub 5

I believe I should be able to connect to the router via the 5ghz band, but its currently connecting on the 2.4ghz band

Does anyone know how I can change this?

You will need to log onto the router setup page but only use 5ghz setting if all the wifi devices you use are capable of using it otherwise you may have problems.

thanks - have done that - taken the sync off between the 2.4 and 5, created new SSID name for the 5

Have connected laptop and ipone to the new 5 frequency

all seems to be working well
