Enable 5G for AC 8260 wireless adapter

Jump to solution

I have tested AC 8260 wireless adapter on Joule with Linux system, it can successfully connect other AP no care that the AP is 2.4G or 5G.

But when I use AC 8260 as Hotspot, it only can work on 2.4G, not work on 5G, I also try to change different wireless regulatory domain. still can't enable 5G.

How can I enable 5G for Hotspot function?@

Thanks in advance

Hello danner,

 

 

Thanks for reaching out!

 

 

I did a quick research on this topic and found that the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260, just like the 7260, does not support 5GHz AP due to regulatory limitations as it's mentioned in https://communities.intel.com/message/281274# 281274 https://communities.intel.com/message/281274# 281274.

 

 

If you have any other Joule related question or doubts, please don't hesitate to come back to the community.

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any way to achieve this. Nevertheless, you might be interested in the Wireless Networking community (https://communities.intel.com/community/tech/wireless https://communities.intel.com/community/tech/wireless) for a more accurate response in this regard.
