If you are looking to change the Wi-Fi frequency on your Android device and to force it to use the 5GHz band, then you need this guide. Here we are going to tell you in a few simple steps how to do just that.
Start by going to Settings on your Android device and tap on Wi-Fi, tap the 3-dot icon, and tap on Advanced. Now tap on Wi-Fi Frequency Band and pick the band from 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
How you can connect your mobile device to A 2.4GHz network
As you might know, every android uses different Wi-Fi bands to connect, like some mobiles can not be connected to 5GHz networks. Before you connect to any Wi-Fi, make sure your mobile is set accordingly.
How to connect Android to A 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network
The latest Wi-Fi routers chose the Wi-Fi band automatically and used the best band that will provide maximum signals to the android phone. They do not use different SSID for 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, and it means they can change the bands automatically when needed. In other words, either your mobile is 2.4GHz or 5GHz it can be connected to the Wi-Fi router without any trouble.
If you are using an old phone which only supports 2.5GHz, it will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi router. Similarly, the devices which use both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands will automatically connect to the device.
It is important to note that signal strength congestion and other physical properties can vary from device to device. Some devices can receive strong signals, and some cannot receive strong signals; it is entirely dependent on the device infrastructure, not on the Wi-Fi router.
Ultimately the choice is made by your device; it’s the device that decides which band needs to be used.
