    How can I force my Xbox Series X to connect to the 5Gh channel / band of my router's...


    Problem:

    I live in the UK. I have a BT Smart Hub which combines 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz into one Wi-Fi network and has no option so split out the bands into two networks.

    My Xbox Series X appears to connect to there first band that it discovers upon booting up, which means that half of the time it connects to 5 GHz, and the other half of the time it connects to 2.4 GHz.

    I could turn off the 2.4 GHz band entirely but I have older devices that require this, so would rather not do that.

    I would like to be able to tell my Xbox to only connect to the 5Ghz band, but I can't find a setting for this. Is there a way to do this?

    :)

    My xbox series s download speed low and I can't play my 2k without getting kicc out the game because on lagging

    Have the issue on my series x under WiFi , all my other devices are fine but when I use the series x under 2.4gh it’s really bad lag and 5gh is better but still laggy, only solution that I found right now is to use Ethernet and completely disconnect WiFi. Hope this helps!

    Connection speed

    I'm using the Wireless that comes with the Xbox slim, I know it supports N. It's not a Dual Band router. I'm running on a WEP pass security.

    I don't know how to check what it is broadcasting with the Linksys WRT110. I can see the radio band is set to Auto- 20/40Mhz channel. My other option is jst Standard- 20Mhz This router can go up to 130Mbps.

    I have a setting to were it will only take Wireless-N, but I've tried this and cant connect with my xbox when I try. And I have others connecting to this router so I don't want to kick them off, I haven't checked what they connect on.

    I've checked all the tabs on my router and do not see what it is broadcasting at.

    Xbox 360 Error Code 80151103

    This is not a hardware related issue. My profile cannot connect on any X360 game from any of my Xboxes (Xbox Series X, Xbox One X, Xbox 360).

    Ive done most of the fixes here. It seems I can connect via my Hotspot so weirdly must be an ISP or router issue. I need to figure out how to port forward, maybe that will solve it.

    Horrible Wireless Performance

    @Daitheflu916

    Have you tried changing the wifi channel?

    Also what wifi band are you using?

    If you are using the standard 2.4Ghz band then wifi can be so congested that it's impossible to get a decent speed. Although changing the wifi channel can help. For instance I get a massive speed drop if I am using wifi channel 1 but if I switch to channel
    11 the speed doubles.

    If you have a dual band AC router though then try connecting to the 5Ghz band.

    I got a massive speed boost when I did that. With 2.4Ghz I was lucky to get speeds above 10Mbps. Now I get the full speed of my line which is 75megs.

    Brand new controller keeps disconnecting every ten seconds

    Hi There

    I have also had a similar issue with my controller that disconnects.

    My Xbox One S was connected on the 5Ghz band and I thought to myself just to try the 2.4Ghz Channel. So far I have not had any disconnection issues.

    I have watched many YouTube videos and read on many forums and support pages that it might be caused by interference. I've also solved this on a friends console by changing the wireless channel on the router.
    If you know how to do this, give it a go as a last resort and consult your router manual. If you don't know how to do it, consult an IT specialist.

    So yeah, give it a try (If you have a dual band router - 2.4 GHz & 5 GHz)
