I am not seeing my 5ghz SSID, only the 2.4gHz one
I connected to my 5GHz network fine, using Apple Airport Extreme (previous gen).
Same here, also seeing 2.4 GHz.
yeah 5 works. Its just not as strong.
The wifi is dual band so it should be able to connect to either.
Dang, guess I need to troubleshoot my router.
5GHz is very much a line of sight thing, at least as much as I have tested it.
I have an Apple Time Capsule (older version), and sitting across the room my Android phone sees both networks but will only connect at the higher speed if I force it. The signals appear to be the same as reported on the crappy little phone Wi-Fi apps.
It's not, it's just shorter range than 2.4 GHz.
5GHz has a little harder time getting through walls too, so that can significantly effect range.
