The difference between the two, and which one you should choose.

WiFi Range (2 or 5G?)

When connecting to the router, you may see two different Wi-Fi Networks: a 2G and a 5G. You see these numbers on the router too.

Two questions you may be asking yourself are “Which one do you connect to?” or perhaps “Which one is better?” Let’s break it down.

The 2G stands for 2.4 Gigahertz (GHz) which is the wavelength used to send information to the router. The 2G is better at long distances and less congested areas.

The 5GHz is a higher frequency wavelength that can send more information, but it doesn’t work as well at longer distances. It is also harder to congest (similar to a highway with vehicles and flow of traffic), so if you live in a busy area, this is the network for you.

You can always try both networks and see which one has the faster speed. You can test your speeds at https://netallover.speedtestcustom.com/
