Hi @foggydawn01510

 

HERO7 Black, HERO7 Silver, HERO7 White, HERO6 Black and Fusion (if purchased in an applicable region) has the option to select the Wi-Fi band (5GHz or 2.4GHz). 

 

Are you trying to pair the camera to your phone?

Pair Your Camera with the GoPro App

 

Thanks!

What country are you in?

If in Europe there the GoPro doesn't communicate on a licenced 5GHz channel so need to change to 2.5GHz

That's funny because I'm using an iPhone on 5ghz with the Gopro 7 Black and I can not use it in my Android. Shame on you, GoPro

Well, then you are breaking the law because channel 161 on 5ghz is not allowed in Italy, neither in Spain, neither in most (or any) countries in the EU.
But this is not the thing. The hing is that you can not change the channel on one of the allowed ones. That's the question

My Galaxy Note9 is an "italian note9", not imported..

my older hero 6 work only with 2.4Ghz with Galaxy S7 edge....but actually it's all ok with 5Ghz without any unlocked features
