    Hi,
    I have recently updated my Lg G7 one to the latest Android version and after that I don't see 5Ghz wifi channel anymore. I can see the same is active and my other Samsung and Nexus phone at home are connecting to 5G router. I restarted my LG phone and router few times, still it's not showing 5G in list of WiFi network in LG. Anyone is having same issue?

    I don't want to reset my phone to factory default as I have many app installed and don't have time to waste 4-5 hour setting up everything from scratch. Please help.

    Welcome to Android Central! See if you can find the option to choose the wi-fi band as described here: https://www.reddit.com/r/lgg7/commen...se_24ghz_wifi/

    Always name the 2 connections (2.4GHz and 5GHz) differently, so you can tell which is which. If they're named the same, the phone may only show the stronger one.

    The router sets 2 network with 2 different name. So the name is already different for 2.4 and 5G. Other phone in my house can still connect to 5G but not LG after update. I have changed the channel and restarted router few times. Nothing worked for LG. Samsung phone is still connected to 5G.

    Sorry, are you saying you already looked for that setting to select wi-fi bands on the phone?

    Yes. When I turn off phone wifi and turn it on back, it scan and show only 2.4 connections. None of the 5G wifi even shows up in the list. I checked my router settings too. Which looks perfectly fine. Other phones in the house can still connect to wifi5G. Only LG after Android update can't. Still it shows 5G saved network under previously saved connection lis, but can't connect.
