How do I change from 2.4 Ghz to 5GHz?

Answered by Cody Janus

To change from a 2.4 GHz WiFi network to a 5 GHz network on an Android device, you can follow these steps:

1. Unlock your Android device and go to the home screen.
2. Swipe down from the top of the screen to access the notification panel.
3. Locate and tap on the “Settings” icon, which is usually represented by a gear or a cogwheel.
4. In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on “Connections.” On some devices, it may be labeled as “Network & Internet” or something similar.
5. Within the Connections menu, you should see an option called “WiFi.” Tap on it to proceed.
6. The WiFi settings page will display a list of available networks. Find the network you are currently connected to and tap on it.
7. A pop-up window will appear, showing detailed information about the network. Look for an option called “Forget” or “Forget Network” and tap on it.
8. Once you have forgotten the network, go back to the list of available networks by tapping the back arrow or the “WiFi” label at the top of the screen.
9. Now, look for the 5 GHz network you want to connect to. It may have a different name or include “5G” in the network name.
10. Tap on the desired 5 GHz network, and if it is password-protected, you will be prompted to enter the network’s password. Type in the password and tap “Connect” or “Join.”

That’s it! You have now successfully changed from a 2.4 GHz WiFi network to a 5 GHz network on your Android device. Keep in mind that not all Android devices support connecting to 5 GHz networks, so make sure your device is compatible before attempting to connect.
