How to choose whether 2.4GHz or 5GHz
- The Size of Your House
Larger homes will necessitate a larger coverage area, and the 2.4GHz band is ideal for this.
5GHz will not only provide faster speeds for smaller homes or apartments, but it will also help with interference from neighbouring networks.
That being said, it’s critical to consider Wi-Fi network extenders, which allow you to expand your Wi-Fi coverage while taking advantage of all the benefits of the 5GHz band.
- Interferences and Roadblocks
Because of the large number of devices that use this frequency, the 2.4GHz band is more prone to interference. Older routers, microwaves, Bluetooth devices, baby monitors, garage door openers, and other devices are included.
As long as the device is close to the router/access point, the 5GHz will be a better option for helping to fix inferences slowing down your WiFi connection. 5GHz also operates on a large number of distinct channels. Less overlap results in less interference, which leads to improved performance.
- The Type of Device and How It Is Used
Because the 2.4GHz band employs longer waves, it is better suited for longer distances or transmission through walls and other solid objects. Ideally, you should connect devices for low bandwidth activities like Internet browsing to the 2.4GHz band.
5GHz, on the other hand, is best suited for high-bandwidth devices or activities such as gaming and HDTV streaming.
The goal is to distribute your devices across both bands so that there is less competition for the same channels. Keeping your personal and Internet of Things (IoT) devices separate can also improve WiFi security. You can improve network performance by dividing your devices between 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
