Hi @RoslyneTurnbull 

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I understand that you already edited your post to say that your concern has been addressed. Just to add, however, you can use any of the two. That being said, we strongly suggest using 5GHz since it transmits data at a faster speed than that of 2.4GHz. However, the range is shorter for 5GHz and some older devices may not be compatible with it. So as a general rule, if your devices can detect 5GHz, then go for that band. Else, pick 2.4GHz as a last resort.
