New Modem Settings

Ranson52

Hi - I have a new Optus Sagemcon modem supplied today.

When I connect to WiFi I have a choice of two settings.

OPTUS_C5AC3A

OPTUS_C5AC3A5GB

 

My questions are, what is the difference and which one should I use.

I use an iPad Air.

Thanks

Ranson

I would say the second one (OPTUS_C5AC3A5GB) is 5Ghz and and the first one is 2.4Ghz. If you are using your iPad at close range to the modem 5Ghz is best. The other one will give you longer range but it's more susceptible to interference.

Thank you for the advice.

I think in our case, now you have clarified it for me, I would use the 2.4 as we spend a lot of time in an outdoor area away from the modem.

Shall try it out and see how it goes.

Thank you again.

Yep 2.4Ghz for sure if you are trying to use it outside. Cheers Smiley Happy
