Re: Hero6 Black 5 GHz wi-fi not working

geekslayer thanks but it has been confirmed in this thread that the Hero6 is transmitting on an illegal frequency. This thread is about that issue. Trying to connect at the illegal frequency isn't going to change that.

What is illegal about trying to use it in an hotel in the US?, If I'm not mistaken he tried there after he bought it at Target. It's US phone and the same chipset that my phone has.

Re: Hero6 Black 5 GHz wi-fi not working

geekslayer from what I can tell the phone was likely bought in Sweden. Most (if not all) phones bought in Europe will have the illegal frequencies disabled. Thus making it impossible to use the Hero6 on 5 GHz.
