Since wireless is a common state of mind today, it is worth noting that wireless is always slower and more susceptible to interference than when using an Ethernet cable. There are many reasons for this, but one of the biggest problems is the 2.4 GHz frequency band.
If your wireless connection drops, is slow or you have trouble connecting to your Wi-Fi network, it’s probably due to frequency congestion. Problems begin to occur when several devices in the vicinity try to use the same frequency band. So if you see a long list of Wi-Fi networks in your area, your connection may be slow and less reliable, especially when using the 2,4 GHz band.
Fortunately there’s an alternative option for 2,4 GHz band, the 5GHz band, which has the potential to cut through network clutter and interference to maximize network performance.
Use the 5 GHz frequency band whenever possible! (Refer to the wireless router’s manual for instructions on setting up the 5 GHz band).
