Band Selection

Use the default values as they appear or adjust them for your environment.

Each network can be accessed over two bands: 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz:

  • The 2.4 GHz band is supported by all devices with Wi-Fi and should be used by devices that are a few years old or older. This band passes through walls better and propagates over longer distances, so it may have a longer range.
  • The 5 GHz band is best for newer devices. It offers better throughput, reduced interference, and faster data speeds, but does not pass through walls as well as the 2.4 GHz band.

NOTE: You must assign at least one band for the guest network before it can be turned on.

When you make a selection, your MiFi notifies you that it is applying changes and returns to the screen when finished.
