How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero7 Black. There is no menu to  swich frequency  on Gopro Hero7 black.

Re: How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero7 Black

Under preferences, go to Connections and then Wifi Band. You can change to 2.4ghz from there.

Re: How do i switch wifi frequency GoPro Hero7 Black

hi,

 

https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/I-want-to-switch-wifi-band-but-the-preference-is-not-displaye...

 

I do not know how ended up.

and it is not clear if it is a regional issue.

 

where are you living or where did you buy the hero7?

 

try a manual update to 1.61 firmware.

 

use this link for manual update, from desktop...

https://gopro.com/update/hero7-black

 

follow the "manual update link"

 

the serial number you can find it from camera menu, no need to struggle to read as they say...

Preferences > About > Camera Info > serial number

 

copy the zip, unzip-it

copy the 3 files in a fresh formatted microSD card under an "UPDATE" folder

introduce the microSD card in the camera.

be sure you have enough battery >50% let's say.

power it on.

wait for the upgrade to finish (see the pictures in the link)

format the card again from camera menu:

Reset > Format > SD card

and you are good to go...

 

 

 

just me,

robert

Thank you for your comment.

 

Past conversations about this topic in the support HUB says,  in Japan using  5GHZ  frequency for Wi-Fi is restricted. So GoPro Hero 7

 

sold in Japan is unable to chose 5GHZ.   Wi-Fi analyzer  shows me that my camera is using 2.4GHZ frequency.

 

Thank you a lot of comment.
