Re: Wifi channel change

SELECTING A DIFFERENT CONNECTION SPEED
By default, your GoPro uses the 5GHz Wi-Fi band to connect to other
devices. This band provides faster transfer speed than the 2.4GHz band.
The transfer speed affects how long it takes for your video and photos to
be copied to your phone to create a QuikStory.
To use the 5GHz band, your phone and region must also work with that
band. Otherwise, you can change the Wi-Fi band on your GoPro to
2.4GHz.
1. Swipe down, then tap Connections > Wi-Fi Band.
2. Tap 2.4GHz.

Re: Wifi channel change

thank you for the replay, buy unfortunately i can not see this as an option on my gopro. i just dont have the "wifi band" tab- its just not there.

is there another way to check or change it?

when i check on my phone- the wifi connection says that the connection is on 2.4ghz- so i know for sure that im not cennected to the 5ghz- is there another manual way to change it? my with the app? or the computer?

 

thank you

Hi @michaelmodi

 

 

There are certain countries that do not allow devices to emit a 5GHz Wi-Fi band. Where did you purchase the camera?

 

 

Thanks!
