Hi Team, 

 

I am unable to connect to my 5ghz wifi network on multiple devices i.e iphone, windows 10 device, TV etc

 

my modem is a TP-Link VR1600v with a green 5G light lit up solid. 

 

i have checked the settings, enabled/disabled 5G, hide/unhide SSID, changed SSID, changed password with no luck. 

 

could you assist me with this issue? 

 

the device information as follows 

 

Firmware Version: 0.1.0 0.9.1 v5006.0 Build 180828 Rel.56416n

Hi @Jasecha,

 

We'd like to confirm if all devices are unable to connect with 5Ghz wireless frequency. In the event that only a specific device(s) is having issues to connect with the 5GHz Wi-Fi it could be the Wireless Frequency Compatibility issue.

You may try to change the channel of the 5Ghz to check if it will work. Please see links below.

 

Wireless Channel on your modem - what is it and why should I change it?.

Hi Shane,

as mentioned All devices do not connect to the 5ghz network.

I’ve tried changing frequency to auto to each of the frequency with a reboot and does not work.

Please advise next steps
