I was wondering why Samsung Galaxy S10 does not roam/switch to WiFi on 5 Ghz - when available.
The mobile phone stays in congested 2,4 GhZ WiFi band in spite of roaming to the better 5GhZ Wifi even if the accesspoint does suggest to roam to 5GhZ.
Can you please help me with this? Why is there no setting "prefer 5GhZ" on Wifi config ? (In hotspot config - advanced options there is a selection available).
That is strange. I have Unifi ubiquiti AC-AP-LR routers in my house. They have a setting (although in beta) where they "force" devices to use 5g if possible.
The problem that my s10e keeps dissconecting from time to time between the routers is another thing.
It would help if you gave us the model of your router?
Go around the net. These routers while being very good have had a known problem with Samsung for a long time. The new router firmware did not fix anything. Sadly.
Strange. While you cant connect to 5g mine does but disconnects. Id check on the official user forum of the router company. This forum is dead like my racer dreams.
Disconnections were possibly resulted from signal jumping, this one is the phone connects to 5GHz from 2.4GHz and vice versa. If the phone is connected to 5GHz and you go further way from the router it will signal jump down to 2.4GHz.
The primary differences between the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz wireless frequencies are range and bandwidth. 5GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance. 2.4GHz offers coverage for farther distances, but may perform at slower speeds.
Suggests to open your router GUI, set the band to 5GHz only, and not dual(5GHz and 2.4GHz), this should lock your phone to 5GHz only. Thanks.
Hi, yes the latest.
I fixed my problem 2 days ago. By simply turning off the "network optimiser" and "forcing high performance devices on 5ghz".
My device still connects to 5ghz by itself. And I dont have problems with my weak signal and wifi connection drop.
TURN OFF THAT BETA FEATURE IMMEDIATELY. It seems to fix all the problems on the latest firmware.
