5ghz Hotspot invisible


I have a S10 5G, when I go into advanced settings for the hotspot and click on Use 5g when available, activate the hotspot it is invisible to all devices. 


So so frustrating, 2.4ghz hotspot is fine.

What devices are you trying to connect to the hotspot? Because it is possible, that they doesn't support 5GHz.


It's my PC, I have a top 4 month old t-link usb wifi that connects to 5g on my virgin router. 


I also tried it on my old Pixel 2. 




Looks like no one else has this problem. 


May do a factory reset?

Good idea, it worth a try.

I am having the same issue, but check again and see what channel your AP is at .


I am observing that it only sees AP's that are in the lower 5G band, not the upper one.
