    Just bought the phone last night. Been trying to figure it out by reading forums etc.

    Seen a post to change the WiFi frequency from 2.4 to 5. But i dont have that option.

    My girlfriends phone is connected to 5ghz and she also doeent hace that option on her phone.

    Not sure why my stylo isnt picking up 5ghz bands.

    Ive done a hard reset and cleared cache etc...

    Still nothing. Please help

    Have you tried rebooting your router?

    The phone will connect to the strongest signal. The best workaround is to create 2 SSIDs on your router, one for 2.4Ghz and one for 5Ghz. You can then select the one you want to connect to, on your phone.

    I have done that already. My girlfriend is connected to the 5ghz on her phone. The 5ghz bands dont appear under my WiFi list on my phone

    Yea i rebooted the router. Then I went into the settings and renamed the 5g SSID. Then rebooted again.

    Then I installed WiFi analyzer. No 5g networks appear. Just 2.4.. Not sure what to do next.

    Does it give you any issues running on 2.4 ?

    Only when i play some games but otherwise no. It's just annoying knowing the phone supports 5Ghz and I cant run it.

    Connect to your home network, then go to Settings>Wi-fi and tap your network. Under the Frequency heading, does it say 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz there?

    Does your router support 802.11ac, or only b/g/n?
