Not sure how to change it from 2.4GHz to 5 GHz but I know the 802.11a = 5GHz
802.11b and g are 2.4GHz
and the 802.11 can be both 2.4 or 5GHz the information from master JC is not correct if i'm not mistaken

My router allows for separate SIDDS for each band. I call one Rocket and the other Rocket5. Devices that have both radios and can receive both show each SIDD and I pick which band I want to operate on. Also can switch my wireless repeater/bridge between both freqs, but can only select one at a time. Would need a separate extender to have both freqs repeated.

Given if your router is a wireless G/N router, you can't change the the frequency to 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz. It is a Hardware design. But if your router is wireless A/G, you can disable the wireless G 2.4GHz so that the 5GHz will run. Because a wireless A/G runs with two frequencies, Wireless A - 5GHz and G - 2.4 Ghz.

The tablet "Teclast X16 Pro" has a very bad WLAN Connection. My Mobilfone (10 cm near Teclast tablet) has a typical download rate >45 Mbit, Teclast below 11 Mbit.

I believe that this wireless radio operates in the 2.4Ghz range, so I would recommend trying to have it in a "line of sight" to the wireless access point if possible. If you have the ability to change it to the 5Ghz range/connect to a 5Ghz SSID you should do so. This will cut down on the interference from metal and other structures.

You can download a Wifi analyzer app for your phone that should help you determine what you have in the 5Ghz range if anything, and what the SSID is.

How do I assign PC to 5ghz band?

Your wireless access point (AP) will need to first have support for the 5Ghz band and if it does it will need to be setup.

Some by default will have the Service Set Identifier (SSID) or more simply the name set as Wifi2Ghz and Wifi5Ghz, just as an example.

If you have setup the 5Ghz band on your AP and you cannot see the 5Ghz SSID or name when you search for the Wifi Signal, then you probably don't have a wireless card installed on your computer which supports the 5Ghz band.

If you require the use of it, an upgraded wifi card or USB dongle will be required.

Alternatively if you have a device such as a smartphone which supports 5Ghz signals, use that to test to see if the AP is doing it's job, if not, again make sure it's setup and turned on. Otherwise an upgrade is needed to use it.

WNDR3700v2 cannot change region

Why does the WNDR3700 only support 4 channels in 5GHz if the wireless region is Europe, 8 channels if wireless region is United States at "Up to 300Mbps"?

Other 5GHz channels are DFS channels. There are government radars working in those channels. Without passing DFS certification test, we are not allowed to open those DFS channels. We are doing DFS certification and we can open those channels by releasing new firmware after we get DFS certification in the near future. You DO NOT need to change hardware, but just upgrade the WNDR3700 firmware to the new one which supports DFS channels. However, you still need to make sure your 5GHz wireless adapter can support DFS channels. Otherwise, you still can't use those channels.

In short you need to upgrade the firmware :

F7D8302V1 is only broadcasting the 2.4ghz Wireless G SSID (SSID = Belkin.5d94 ) The 5ghz Wireless N SSID is set to "MyTV". This SSID doesn't show up as broadcasting on any devices...

This might not actually be an issue. The 5ghz band is not available on a lot of devices. Unless your device says it supports 5ghz, you will not see it. All cell phones I know of, blackberry's, iphones, etc... use wireless G, or N 2.4ghz. New devices like HD streaming video players, media extenders, 2010-2011 MAC's and some new PC laptops support the 5ghz band. Your configuration screen shot looks fine. Verify that your devices support 5ghz.
My MAC book PRo 2011 supports 5ghz and so does my Asus Laptop. These two devices connect to the 5ghz and all my other devices, including my blackberry, connect to 2.4ghz.

I have a D-Link DIR-628 2.4GHz/5GHz router, and I need help in switching from 2.4 GHz to the 5GHz frequency. Can anyone help me with this?

Hi Randy,

The easiest way is to go to the Setup menu (Top menu) -> Wireless Settings (Left side menu) and change the setting from 2.4 GHz to 5GHz with a radio button.

You can also download the manual from D-link (here). Look at page 29 - there is a description with a screen shot.

If you need help with accessing your router's interface, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
(Or check the manual...;-)

How do i change 2.4ghz to 5ghz on my DIR-628 router?

5Ghz wireless signal should be automatically broadcasted by the router unless the said router is not capable of broadcasting 5Ghz. Check with the manufacturer if it does.

Panasonic KXTG2344 Phone 2,4ghz malfunction with microwave

You can change the channel used by the phone in the settings, but the better option is to make sure the charger base is nowhere near the microware.

Also, make sure that the microwave and the charger base are NOT plugged into the same outlet. I would even try a different outlet than you are using now as interference would definitely pass through the line.
