XI5 wireless box require 5g?

Does the wireless XI5 box require 5g connection? If won't pull up any of my other networks besides my 5g network.

I don't have one, but they should not require 5g, but it does require Cat5 cable.

Yes it does require access to the 5ghz network (that’s not what 5G is), the Xi6 can access both networks.
