Resetting router to factory defaults should fix this.

Hey how do you up a 2.4/5 ghz dual band router up to 5ghz? I just bought this and my ps3 is still laggy.

You need to beware that 5Ghz may not be supported by your PS3, as this is not a wireless standard.

Wireless Standards are a,b,g & n

You probably should either relocated the router so its not obstructed by brick walls or metal objects.
Otherwise you can try move the PS3.

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.
