How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero 5 Black

I have firmware V2.60, i want to use my GoPro with my Feiyu Tech G6 gimble, to pair the camera to the gimble i need to use a 2.4Ghz connection as 5Ghz is not supported by the gimble.

 

Is it possible to set my GoPro Hero 5 black's wifi to 2.4Ghz and if so, how do i do it?

 

In the camera's connection tab there is no option to change wifi settings only turn wifi on or off.

 

Thx

According to the camera information article that we have, the HERO5 Black's built-in Wi-Fi frequency is 5GHz and 2.4 GHz, b/g/n (dual band with no specific prioritization). I believe it will depend on what the external device would need. As the prioritization option is not supported by the camera features, perhaps you can check with Feiyu if there is something that could be set on their end? Thanks, @gazofcorra

Hello @gazofcorra

 

The option to change the Wi-Fi Frequency is found under Connections, then go to Wi-Fi, then Wi-Fi Band. This option comes before the option for turning the Wireless connection on or off. Let us know if you find it. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius

Re: How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero 5 Black

Hi @mariustanya
Just turned off wifi, then turned off power to camera, turned back on and swiped screen down to get to settings, clicked on Connect, Top section says "Connected devices" and has GoPro app and Connect new device options, under those is the heading "Camera Information" with 3 options, 1. Name & Password, 2. Reset Connections, 3. Wireless Connections. Those are the only options under "Connect" and the Wireless connections option has a turn on power icon only. I have my camera setup as English (UK) and Pal, i have tried setting the camera to NTSC and i still only have those options.
Thx

Re: How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero 5 Black

Apologies, @gazofcorra. My bad. I picked up the wrong camera. I was looking at the HERO6 Black. The HERO5 Black camera does not have the option to change Wi-Fi frequencies. Sorry.

**bleep** i can't control the camera via the gimble unless i have 2.4Ghz selected, i assume the Hero 5 black runs at 5Ghz by default. Many thanks for your replies @mariustanya

Re: How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero 5 Black

Hey @ggomez2123,

Short answer is no, you can't change the frequency on the hero 5 and i was not happy with the gimble.

I contacted feiyutech (eventually) and their customer support is diabolical, so i returned the gimble and sold the hero 5 and bought the new hero 7 black (problem solved).
