802.11n Instead of 802.11ac
Our reader asks: the problem is the following. I have set up a mobile hotspot on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and selected the 5 GHz band in its advanced options. I just want it to be visible to as little people as possible.
As you might know, not everyone has a device supporting 802.11ac standard and another reason is that 5 GHz Wi-Fi signal covers a way smaller spot.
But when I activated the hotspot I found out that my phone is nevertheless distributing 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. Why does it ignore the settings?
