    I recently got a new wifi modem because my other one was faulty. Since I got it the wifi on my phone at times has been unbearably slow and sometimes even useless. I was looking at the modem today and it said it was running on the setting of 5ghz. Am I remembering correctly that the S6 is best to run on wifi at 2.4ghz? Should I try changing it and see if it makes a difference?

    You could try removing your network and re-adding it.

    Normally 5GHz is quite a bit faster than 2.4GHz. The advantage of 2.4GHz is that it has longer range and penetrates wall better. An S6 should be perfectly happy running on either band.

    Try this, it's just a simple reboot of the router:

    1. On the phone go to: Settings > WiFi > long-press on your network > Forget network.
    2. Turn off the phone.
    3. Unplug the power to the router for at least 30 seconds.
    4. Plug in the router and give it plenty of time to fully reboot, at least 3-4 minutes.
    5. Turn on the phone and try to connect.
