    Hi!

    I've just bought Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 wifi.
    I have the router Cisco Linksys E4200.


    I enable 5GHz on E4200.
    I disable 2.4GHz on E4200 to be sure that the tablet connects to 5GHz.

    But, doing so, the tablet does not see the wifi.

    Anybody succeeded to connect to 5GHz with this router and this tablet?


    Thanks a lot!

    5Ghz doesn't have very broad coverage - regardless what the marketing materials says. I had it configured initially, but had to enable 2.4Ghz b/c my devices (laptops, tablets, phones) couldn't hold on to the signal @ even 20 ft away - same flr. This is a known issue that 5Ghz doesn't offer good coverage. Do a google (or bing) search and you'll begin to wonder why the hype around 5Ghz.

    Go back to 2.4Ghz and save some headache & frustration.
