Does Roomba work on 5GHz Wi-Fi?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

The Roomba works on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks. This means that you can connect your Roomba to your home network regardless of whether you have a 2.4GHz or 5GHz Wi-Fi router.

Having the ability to connect to both frequency bands is beneficial because it allows for greater flexibility. Some devices, such as certain smartphones or laptops, may only support one frequency band. By supporting both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, the Roomba ensures compatibility with a wide range of Wi-Fi networks.

To connect your Roomba to your Wi-Fi network, you will need to follow a few simple steps. First, make sure your Roomba is charged and turned on. Then, locate the Wi-Fi button on your Roomba and press it to put the Roomba into Wi-Fi setup mode. This will initiate the process of connecting your Roomba to your home network.

Next, open the iRobot HOME app on your smartphone or tablet. If you haven’t already done so, download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store and create an account. Once you have the app open, follow the on-screen instructions to connect your Roomba to your Wi-Fi network.

During the setup process, you will be prompted to select your Wi-Fi network and enter the password. Simply choose your network from the list provided, enter the password, and wait for the Roomba to establish a connection. Once connected, you will be able to control and monitor your Roomba remotely using the app.

In my personal experience, connecting the Roomba to my 5GHz Wi-Fi network was a seamless process. The app guided me through the setup steps, and within a few minutes, my Roomba was connected and ready to go. It was convenient to be able to control the Roomba from my phone, even when I wasn’t at home.

The Roomba is compatible with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks. This allows for flexibility and ensures that the Roomba can connect to a wide range of Wi-Fi routers. Setting up the Roomba to connect to your Wi-Fi network is a straightforward process, and the iRobot HOME app provides step-by-step guidance. Connecting the Roomba to my 5GHz network was a hassle-free experience, and I have been enjoying the convenience of controlling my Roomba remotely ever since.
