Change Hotspot from 5ghz to 2,4ghz

I want to use the hotspot with 2.4Ghz instead of 5Ghz. Is that possible?
Where can I change it? I don’t find an option in the WebUI.
Is there a file for the WIFI hotspot and if so, where is it?

Hi @bommix, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

It’s possible, but it’s not configurable from the web interface. Apparently there’s a hardware restriction that forces the hotspot to match the frequency of whatever wifi network the Raspberry Pi is connected to.

This is the relevant code file, if that’s what you’re asking about. If you’re asking for a configuration file then I don’t believe there is one.

I’m not connected to any wifi network. but that means if I connect inatilly to a 2.4 ghz it should have the hotspot on 2.4?

Relevant issue:

(sorry, I don’t have an actual answer to your question)
