    Is there a way I'm not seeing to only connect to 5ghz signals?

    My router unfortunately has no settings to separate the two into individual SSIDs and uses software to choose which band devices connect too.

    My other devices allow you to only use the 5Ghz band but I can't see to see ant option on the Xbox. If this isn't an option can you add something that will allow this?

    Hello Alex,

    Thank you for posting on the Xbox forums. We understand that you are attempting to connect to the 5GHz WiFi network, but it is not appearing in your list of available networks. The 2.4GHz WiFi network is meant to optimize the speed for devices that
    are farther away from the router/gateway. The 5GHz WiFi network is meant to optimize the speed for devices that are closer to the router/gateway. We suggest moving the console closer to the router/gateway. Be sure to let us know if the 5GHz WiFi network appears
    on your available list after moving it closer.

    WiFi connection

    You may want to check if your wireless is 2.4 or 5ghz combined.

    Most routers use 1 wifi network across both 2.4 and 5ghz frequency bands. This can be an issue. 2.4ghz has a further range than 5ghz, and if using 5ghz the signal may drop causing a disconnect.

    It should be possible via router wifi settings to separate the 2, effectively making your router have "2" wifi networks- one running 2.4ghz and one using 5ghz. They doing that, and connecting only via the 2.4ghz and see if the issue persists

    Xbox One S wi-fi suddenly keeps disconnecting every ~15mins (faulty wifi card?)

    Thanks for the help!

    After 6 days of troubleshooting this, I think I found a solution. I found the 5Ghz network that my Xbox was connected to was very congested (there were tons of other 5Ghz networks in my area). Changing the channel didn't help.

    I tried changing the channel on the 2Ghz network and connected to that instead and that seems to have fixed the issue.

    Even though 5Ghz is supposed to be less congested, everyone seems to prefer that over 2Ghz. When I looked at the Wifi analyzer app, there were tons of nearby 5Ghz networks. I think it was causing dips in signal strength, causing my Xbox to disconnect from
    Wifi. On the other hand, there's not that many 2Ghz networks and some channels weren't being used.

    How do I connect my Xbox one to 5ghz while using an Ethernet connection

    Does your router have the ability to split the bands so that 2.4ghz operates on one SSID and 5ghz operates on another?

    If so, you would then connect to the network SSID for 5ghz.

    I presume the current ethernet connection is not convenient, hence you wanting to use wifi?

    This is weird ?

    I'm pretty sure it tells you under the
    network settings


    Just see if it's different to the ones your other devices are connected to.

    I have two channels/wifi networks from my router/modem and one is a faster (5GHz and is named wifiname-5G), but shorter range, and the other is slower, but has more range (2.4GHz and is named wifiname) if that is of any use. Your devices wifi names may be
    different though.

    I used wifiname as a stand in for my actual wifi name.
