fast and maybe interesting question. In my house I have a router with band steering activated ( 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz with the same SSID ), and I want to force the rpi with volumio to access the 5ghz net instead of 2.4ghz. I had no luck on doing this modifying the wpasupplicant file. Any advice?
I’m not positive on responding to your specific issue, but I just setup Volumio on my RPI 4 and only see 2.4GHz SSIDs… This doesn’t happen with other OSs on the RPI.
Maybe difficulties with the 5GHz band are more intrinsic to the API.
on the 3.xx version also problems…
Like Ferorake, I have 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz on the same SSID, and I want to force connection to 5Ghz. My RPi4 with Volumio does sometimes connect on 5Ghz after restart, but 90% of the time it will connect on 2.4Ghz. If I power off and restart the RPi, sometimes it will switch to 5Ghz after a few tries, but more often it stays on 2.4Ghz and I give up after retrying too many times. The router is 12 feet away, line of sight in the same room (very strong signal and high speed on other devices).
