Hi there, I have a Linksys WAG120n wireless access point.
It is currently running on 2.4Ghz but I would like to shift it to 5Ghz.
I cannot see any option to do this.
Obviously it should be capable of running on either frequency as it is 802.11n.
Are these units factory set to 2.4Ghz or something like that ?

Thanks for any advice.

Just because it is 802.11n compliant doesn't mean it will run 5GHz. 802.11n can be run over 2.4GHz or 5GHz.

The WAG120n, apart from being one of the worst devices around, is not a dual band device so has no 5GHz radio in it.

I'd like to add a +1 to being a horrible modem. Terrible failure rates too.

I have it and it sucks, it can't even give you line stats.

Thankfully you can remedy that with hidden URLs:

These may also work:

That doesn't work for me for some reason. I just get zeros or no value at all.
