I recently got an Archer T6E 1300AC and I'm having trouble connecting to my 5GHz network. My router is providing 2.4GHz as well as 5Ghz access. When I disable 2.4GHz, the card connects to the 5GHz network just fine, I'm struggling however to force it to use 5GHz when both 2.4GHz and 5GHz are enable (I cannot permanently disabel 2.4GHz as there are other devices relying on it). I'm using Win 10 64-bit Version 10.0.18362 Build 18362.

As you know, the Archer T6E supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz both; 

 

If you want to force T6E connect to the 5GHz only, there are 2 options.

1. You can change the wireless mode as 802.11ac only when you go to advanced page of the network adapter.

2. You can use different SSID for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz; just connect the computer to the 5GHz with the password only, and then it won't connect to the 2.4GHz without the password.

 

May it help and have a nice day.
