Ring Pro wired over 5Ghz

I was running my Ring pro with the 5 GHz band and it seemed fine. Was having other problems and told by Ring support they always recommend the 2.4 GHz band. Have others been successfully using 5 GHz band if their router is fairly close to the doorbell? My video is pretty slow and and lags and I’m wondering if the faster frequency might help?

You are certaInly using your 5 Ghz to it’s best potential by having the router close by the Ring device. 5 Ghz is capable of providing optimal connection, however, it’s frequency makes it less dependable over distance or through exterior walls in comparison to the 2.4 Ghz band.

If you’ve tried out the 5 Ghz and are experience connection issues, it will likely be more optimal to use the 2.4 Ghz wifi connection. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
