WIFI 5Ghz on PI 3

Thu May 26, 2016 9:01 am

Hi,

My WIFI ssid on 5 Ghz is not showing up on PI 3.
2,4 Ghz is working great but with lower speed as the designed.
Any suggestion how to fix this?

# uname -a
Linux pi 4.4.9-v7+ #884 SMP Fri May 6 17:28:59 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux
Regards Jan

It is only 2.4GHz WiFI. You can not fix it.

Plug in a dual band WiFi adaptor.
Something like this:
