Any idea why there's no way to disable 5G on any networks home routers??

Considering, there's no evidence proving 5G is any faster or better. I'd rather have 4G. 

Does anyone know how to have home WiFi with 4G only.? Thanks in advance.

Home router tend not to have any G, so don't know what you're referring to

No anyG meaning no 1g,2g,3g,4g,or 5g

If your referring to 2.4Ghz and the 5Ghz wifi bands then you need to open your routers setting and disable the auto (band connection) feature.

On my netgear nighthawk its called 'smart connect' (in the WiFi settings section) or something along those lines (It lets the router decide which band to put your device in), Disabling this will essentially give you two wifi access points that will be joinable. The 2.4Ghz band and the 5 along with two access point names.

You will need to make sure you set passwords for both points. This will allow you to choose which wifi band you want to join.

There is also lots of evidence showing 5Ghz is capable of faster transfer speeds, Running a speed test whilst conncted to each one will show this (providing you have speeds well over 300MB/s available to test).

As a rule of thumb 2.4Ghz has slower max speeds but cover a greater distance in signal and 5Ghz works the opposite way round (more speed less distance).

Anyway sorry for the long winded reply. If I understood your post correctly.. The setting your looking for is within your router settings.

If I've misunderstood, disregard my post lol.

All the best.
