5 GHz WiFi channel disappeared.

5 GHz WiFi channel disappeared.

A couple months ago, my 5ghz WiFi band disappeared and wasn’t shown on any of my devices anymore even though the indicator light on the modem was on. I just got a replacement modem and the same thing is happening. What can I do?

Have you first tried powercycling / re-starting the device ? No joy ? Try hard resetting the device by pressing and holding in the recessed reset button on the rear for 30 seconds.

Hello ADJ18, were you able to get this resolved?

Whenever I restart the Gateway the 5 reappears but eventually (within 24 hours) disappears again. I’ve tried this 3-4 times already. Thoughts?
