Xi5 - Switching WIFI networks?

Xi5 - Switching WIFI networks?

Our Xi5 is connected to the 5.0 GHz band of our network which for whatever reason seems less reliable than the 2.4 band. Is it possible to connect our Xi5 to the 2.4 band?

No, 5 ghz only. You may have to look at the placement of the gateway

This is crazy. I'm 20 ft away, and it cuts out constantly. With Directv, I had a wireless box in a detached garage 80 ft away.
