5Ghz hotspot is invisible in EU, because my s10e (exynos version form europe distribution) generates wifi at 149 (US high band 3) channel. In EU, devices can only detect channels 36-48 (low band 1).  Is there any way to change manually 5Ghz channel to low band 1?

@przemek0924, You already got the answer on local Samsung Community. There's no way to change channel while using 5 GhZ mobile hotspot.

How is this an answer? The real answer is that the 5GHz hotspot feature just doesn't work and hasn't worked for YEARS on European phones. S8, S9, S10, S20 all affected...

 

This is really lazy on Samsung's part. Some paid over €1000 for these products, it's really not acceptable.

Sorry I wrote about this problem on both PL and ENG forum. I thought they are seperate, and someone here maybe knows any way to change 5Ghz wifi channels.

completely agree!  5ghz hotspot is virtually useless unless we can change the channels to increase a wider usage..  this is rubbish

I agree, I paid extra for a premium phone thats lacking features that are on phones that cost half as much. I bought this phone because android doesn't have the ridiculous limitations that Apple enforces on their users only to find Samsung doing the same stupid stuff. This is my last Samsung phone, I wish I had bought the LG now.
