Today, connecting a television to the Internet is one of the first actions we carry out from the first moment we launched it. With the rise of streaming platforms, and the content provided by applications and websites, there are many users who take advantage of the capabilities of their Smart TV to enjoy all this content through the home WiFi network.

However, when what we are trying to reproduce fails, there are cuts, or the WiFi signal does not reach well, that is when we must act to find out what may be happening with our connection. And one of the solutions that can work for certain cases is to change the frequency band to which we are connected.

Networks with various frequencies in the home

When you are going to connect to your home WiFi network, you may find that there are two networks with the same numbering when searching the list of compatible networks. However, one of them has the addition of ‘5G’ or ‘PLUS’ on your SSID (the network identifier).


This happens in the event that your Internet provider has provided you with a dual-band router or more, and the connection supports frequencies of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. If your television is compatible with 5 GHz bands, it means that , as a minimum, supports WiFi 5 or more among its compatible protocols, and therefore, you can see your network divided into two SSID.

Although it is always recommended to connect the television to the 5GHz band, due to the higher data transfer speed, it has a weak point: the coverage is not that wide. This is because we use shorter waves for data transfer, meaning that any obstacle in the house, such as a wall, can affect the signal.

How to configure our TV to be able to enjoy very dark movies or series

In this way, if you have a television several floors away from where the router is located, and you do not have another method to improve coverage at home, you may need to switch to the 2.4GHz network on the TVsince even if you lose speed, it is possible that you gain an extra in terms of signal.

If your TV is located near the router, the best thing to do is connect to the 5GHz network whenever it is supported. But if you still don’t detect the signal well, you may have to investigate how much bandwidth is getting to your tvand ways to extend the coverage of your WiFi network, either through PLCs, extenders, or create a mesh network (WIFi mesh).

It is not always better to connect to the 5 GHz network

Although connecting to the 5 GHz network may be the best solution to get more speed on your devices, not always a recommended optionsince there are small devices at home that do not need such a speed, and that the only important thing in this case is to have a good signal.

If we are looking for greater coverage and stability, in the case of connected speakers, sensors, alarms, household appliances… the 2.4 GHz is ideal. It is because it is better for traversing partitions and other obstaclesbecause these elements do not require high speeds and above all because they are usually only compatible with these networks.

If, on the contrary, we want to connect a TV, the computer, a game console… the ideal network is 5 GHz. Devices that require good network access speeds and where coverage is not so basic. Of course, we must bear in mind that, if we connect devices to the 5 GHz network, it will be more convenient for them to be as close as possible to a connection point.
