My friend's newly-bought Huawei P20 Lite cannot connect to 5Ghz WiFi. He tried numerous tricks like rebooting (phone and router) but none of them worked. Does P20 support 5Ghz wifi at all?:confused:

How to switch to 2.4ghz

My p20 lite is always connected to 5ghz WiFi but drops out when a few metres away from the router, does anybody know how to force it to use the 2.4ghz frequency as this seems to have better range?.

If your device is rooted you can try this:
Change the file cfg_ane_lx1_hisi.ini or cfg_ane_lx2j_hisi.ini depend which model do you have.
This file is located in this path: /vendor/etc
Disable 5G doing this:
band_5g_enable=1
change to:
band_5g_enable=0
reboot
Then tell me if it work with you because I cannot run a test with mine because I don't have passwords for 5Ghz WiFi's around me.
