5GHz WiFi and 5G WiFi are not new technologies. They have been around for quite some time. Many people didn’t know that 5G WiFi was available even if their Wi-Fi hardware does not support it. This article will help you enable a 5G network on Windows 10. Before we get into how to enable 5GHz WiFi in Windows 10, there are some things you need to be aware of. Let’s take a look at them.

A router that supports 5G bandwidth WiFi signals is required in order to make full use of it. A dual-band router, a 5G or 5GHz WiFi router, transmits signals at two frequencies: 2.4GHz (2.4GHz) and 5GHz (5GHz). If your computer cannot detect the 5GHz WiFi signal and the 2.4GHz WiFi signal, it could be a problem with your router or your PC.
