Before we talk about the 2.4G and 5G bands, let's take a brief look at the categories of Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi Alliance renamed Wi-Fi before, and the 802.11ax protocol is Wi-Fi 6, 802.11ac is Wi-Fi 5, 802.11n protocol is Wi-Fi 4.
There is also a 5G in the communication network, which is also the fifth-generation mobile communication technology we have been talking about in the past two years. However, 5G in Wi-Fi is not a communication technology, nor does it refer to the fifth generation Wi-Fi technology, it is a wireless technology produced under the WIFI 5 standard before, and has its own “GHz” unit. Similarly, 2.4G is a wireless technology produced under the 802.11b standard.
At present, Wi-Fi 6 can support both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, while Wi-Fi 5 only supports 5G band and Wi-Fi 4 only supports 2.4G band. Our mainstream WiFi routers now use both Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 4 technology, so you can adjust between the 2.4G and 5G bands.
There is also a difference between 2.4G and 5G band. 2.4G band is better than the 5G band and has a stronger ability to penetrate walls. If your router is in another room, it is recommended to change it to the 2.4G band.
The 5G band has less interference, and the network speed is faster than the 2.4G band, but the disadvantage is the pool to penetrate the wall. if the router is in the same room with you, it is recommended to adjust to the 5G band.
