[Q] 5GHz Hotspot
I've been trying for several days to get my tab (samsung note 10.1) to work as a 5ghz hotspot... unsuccesfully. I've tried with android 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3.
Here are my investigations:
- Connect a tab to a 5hGhz 11a AP router -> it works.
- Force 5Ghz band on the tab (through a very basic app using the setfrequency function of wifimanager), and launch the hotspot -> no change, only 2.4 GHz channels used
- Force 5 Ghz band on 2 tabs and setup "wifi direct" between 2 tabs -> tabs don't see eachother.
- Configure auto mode for the freq choice on the tabs & start wifi direct -> sometimes (roughtly 1 time out of 20) the connection used 5 Ghz.
I use wifi analyzer app to check used channel & frequency.
5 Ghz support looks ok for basic wifi. I believe that hotspot capabilitty is not hardware dependant.
Do you know if the is a way to get an android device to work as a 5ghz hospot? or to force wifi-direct to use 5GHz all the time?
This is my first post on xda. Hope this is the right place.
