    I recently purchased a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid with the U-Connect Theater system. This system allows mirror casting with compatible Android Devices. Miracast is available on my LG G Pad, but it can't see the car's WIFI network.

    After some trial and error I realized that the on-car WIFI only puts out a 5.0GHz signal, and not a 2.4GHz.

    I have a LG G Pad F7.0 that according to the specs is 802.11 b/g/n, so I should be able to access the 5.0GHz frequency. I've done some tests with various WIFI apps and it seems my unit can only see the 2.4GHz frequency currently.

    In searching online I found that there should be a setting for WIFI which allows you to manually select 2.4 or 5.0, but my unit doesn't have this option in the menu. I am wondering if that has something to do with with the version of Lollipop installed?

    So I guess my question is two-fold: Is there a way to enable 5.0GHz visibility with the 5.0.1 version my LG G Pad is running?

    If not, would I be able to change android versions to see this frequency? Any recommendations/guidance here would help if this is my best bet.

    Specs:
    LG G Pad F7.0

    Android 5.0.1

    Kernel Version 3.10.49

    Build Number LRX21Y

    Software Version LK430ZV7

    Thanks for the help!

    According to the specs, either 4.4.2 or 5.0 should allow you to use 5GHz. It could be that the wifi radio is bad.
