You'll ONLY want to use 5 GHz ever again! ● More Tech Discussions ➤ 🤍🤍youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFr3c472Vstwe0Yk43UDnpqib5ReTwaJ- ● Subscribe Here ➤ 🤍🤍youtube.com/user/ThioJoe?sub_confirmation=1 Do you still use 2.4 GHz WiFi when you could be using 5 GHz? This video will hopefully convince you that 5 GHz is almost always the better band to choose if you can. Not only is it much faster, but it also has MUCH less interference compared to the crowded 2.4 GHz band. It has many more channels, so you can probably have your own channel to yourself, no matter how many people are around you. This means you'll have faster WiFi, and a better WiFi signal. #WiFi #Tech #ThioJoe ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ⇨ 🤍Instagram.com/ThioJoe ⇨ 🤍Twitter.com/ThioJoe ⇨ 🤍Facebook.com/ThioJoeTV ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
me and my brother said that 5ghz is unstable and unhealth while 2.4ghz is far better because it stabler and healthier so it better (:
I currently only use 2.4, and have 5 switched off. I prefer a constant strong signal with higher range, and always knowing how a device is connected. Also I have devices that are only 2.4. I have a fixed channel set too. Yes, I think the shorter range of 5 has the advantage of less interference too. I may start using 5 for some devices though mostly because of the extra channels. I also prefer to use a wired connection when I can too.
If your router supports dual band/5GHz, enable it and speed test on your phone/device. Then speed test with 2.4GHz. Repeat this test with both bands while you move to another room or further from router. I have found at least 10+Mbps speed increase with 5GHz when in same room with router.
Does the 2.4GHz use less internet data?
I have a ps5 and it consumes to much data
All well and good Joe, but I'm in the US and have three AP's in my 3-level home, and they will only let me set 5GHz channels in UNII-1 and UNII-3 bands, the entire UNII-2 range from channels 52-144 are unavailable to be set.
Thanks for an excellent presentation of how 2.4 and 5.0 ghz wifi actually work. It cleared up a lot for me and I will be using 5.0 ghz whenever I can from now on.
I recently purchased a cheapo laptop off of a cable tv home shopping channel and eventually found out that its network adapter only works with wifi 2.4 even though the router I have can output the 5.0 signal. I've purchased on of those "plug and play" USB external wifi adapters that should convert my laptop to using either 2.4 or 5.0 ghz wifi and I'm hoping that will give my device a big boost.
Currently, using the 2.4 ghz wifi band, I never seem able to download faster than about 50 mbps which is okay for most hd video streaming, but doesn't allow the fastest download of large game files. I pay my ISP for a maximum download speed of about 300 mbps and am looking forward to seeing what kind of boost I get when I plug that little USB external wifi adapter into the laptop and switch to using 5.0 wifi only. If it gets around 200 mbps, then I'll be satisfied.
Also, thanks for letting me know that I can use that wifi speed analyzer app on my cell phone to scroll over to the right of the graph they provide to see how many of my neighbors are using the 5.0 ghz wifi band. I suspect I won't see many.
Wifi sucks, plain and simple. It was designed so that the “solution” to the problems of range and interference — is to buy more access points (how convenient for AP manufacturers), which fundamentally means even more interference and range problems for devices in that area, because there’s more radios broadcasting. 15 years ago, one 2.4 GHz access point covered an entire house. Now 2.4 GHz is basically useable, and you need at least 3-4 5Ghz APs for the same area.
Can I use both at the same time instead of splitting between the 2? as I have that option to use both at the same time. Whats the better option? I split both and will try each manually. I live in a small apt so yeah ill see what fits me best. thx
Im using 5ghz on all devices atm. I usually use my phone, laptop and iPad. But separately. Thanks.
And my tv, to Netflix I think basically. Gotta connect it tomorrow as I reset my modem. the router is behind the tv in bedroom behind a wall. so ill connect it to 5ghz. thx will see how I go. when I use 2.5ghz at the other side of my apartment my fiends say it cuts out, which sucks.
I bought a new ASUS RT-AX1800S router that has both bands. I had also updated my modem to the COCSIS 3.1 type. I had a lot of problems with internet speed even with wired network. Xfinity sent one tech out and he changed my coaxial cable connections and still had less than 100MBs speed. He blamed the problem on the shared box that my neighbors coax cables going to that box of the street. A tier 2 tech came out and the first thing he did was restore the coax setup that the other guy ripped out. He also checked my coax cable at the modem, and I was getting 1900Mbps on his test equipment. Now on the wired I was getting somewhere between 300-1000 Mbps depending on where I ran the test app and which app I used. Okla speed test showed lower reading. the Fast internet speed test was showing between 700-1200Mbps for wired computers. I had to work on the wireless because it was still much slower. I basically reset the router to factor settings. Previously both 2.4MHz and 5 MHz had the same SSID, now the 5MHz channel has a different SSID with 5G at the end. Using the 5MHz connection I am getting much better speed although the speed decreases a bit when I go downstairs. My network shows 24 Wifi channels in my area, I can't tell which use 5Mhz vs 2.4MHz.
I only use 5 in my home because I have a nearby access point but, more importantly for me, any extra range that I might get from 2.4 is going outside my home and I don't need or want that.
What if you have low bandwidth even with Apple TV 4K
Why is 20 MHz used in 2.4 GHz and not lower bandwidths?
I know that whether I use 2.4 vs. 5 Ghz depends on the device. For instance, my iOS devices seem to drain battery power really fast if I use 5 Ghz.
In fairness nothing is an issue if you can run 4k on three tvs, it's all about practicality rather than technicalities - good for you but I have a three floor house that even has issues with 2.4
do you always automatically assume your audience is imbecile ?
I use wired internet O-O, but good video.
Lol, so back then routers only had 1 option😴, I'm glad now they come with both Ghz on 1 router and can power both on at same time n choose which 2 connect to🙌🏾😴
So, throw away all the 2.4G devices and go buy 5G? I don't think that is practical, particularly with cameras and doorbells.
as a sales engineer that gives wifi trainings a lot of good info here. Although there are a few things I would disagree with.
