Default dual band wifi / 5Ghz wifi

Hi,

Does the G2 supports dual band wifi and 5Ghz wifi?
If so, how do I enable it?

Thanks

Yes, this phone uses a single-stream, dual-band 802.11n chipset, with a max (theoretical) transfer speed of 150 Mbps.

Under Wifi settings, Advanced, you can select whether to only use 2.4 GHz, only 5 GHz, or auto-select.

These settings are not always present, it depends on the firmware version maybe? I have never seen them in international 80210B, 80220B, 80220D. I think autoselect is activated by default in this case.

I had LG G2 stock and now the CloudyFlex 2.2 (which based on stock) and it's not shown in the advanced wi-fi.

I think this setting is not present on all LG based roms, it is a feature from AOSP and/or CM, on which Mahdi rom is surely based.

No 5 ghz setting on mine but the 5 ghz works fine out of the box for me. In fact I'm connected to a 5 ghz ssid right now.
