Re: 5 GHz WiFi channel disappeared.

My 5GHz WiFi channel is not showing up as an available network, even though it is still listed in my account information.  I tried a router reset - still not showing as available.

 

Where did it go, and how do I get it back?

When you performed the reset, did you hold the button in for at least 25-30 seconds before releasing it ?

Same thing. Seems like this is a topic of increasing frequency. Hard reset is really the best answer you have? This seems like a firmware issue or hardware. Status center says it is working fine, but it clearly is not.

FYI, posts here in the past have indicated that a hard reset back to factory defaults can clear up some weird firmware glitches in some cases.
