Wi-Fi Gen2 booster is not supporting 5Ghz Wi-Fi connection with device

Hi,

 

I have turned off band-steering so that there is dedicated SSID for 2.4 GHz and 5G Wi-Fi network.

 

I'm using 5 GHz Wi-Fi on iPhone but when I'm far away from Modem then phone is not connecting to boosters, same behaviour is observed with laptop too. 

 

Any ideas on how to enable gen2 boosters to enable 5 Ghz connection.

 If you turn of wifi on the mobile and then back on when close to the booster does the iPhone connect to the boosters 5G WiFi? If phone doesn't connect to booster the 5G on booster might be faulty. You can check if the booster 5G WiFi is working by i stalling the WiFi analyser app by matt hafner on the the laptop and checking if it is transmitting a signal.

Telstra Smart Modem

Plug in and connect in minutes. Smart.
