PS5: How to Forcibly Connect it to 5Ghz Wifi?Sure, PS5 supports 5Ghz Wifi. However, some routers automatically assign your device to the band that it deems the best without any separate names for it. As such, you’ll never predict if the gaming console or any device is going to connect to a 2.4Ghz or the ideal 5Ghz. To get away from these kinds of annoyances, there is an option within the gaming console settings that provides a solution to it. According to Android Central, the PS5 could be set to forcibly to only connect to a 5Ghz Wifi connection. Without any further ado, here’s how to manually choose the bandwidth to which the PS5 connects.
- Select the gear icon on the upper right corner of the PS5 interface.
- Click on Network from the list of options.
- Then, choose Set Up Internet Connection.
- Wait for the console to scan for the connection.
- Click the Options button.
- Select Wifi Frequency Bands within the popup menu.
- Choose the 5 GHz option.
- Go back to the main menu to apply the new settings.
