Can I use both 2.4 and 5GHz at the same time
Your Wifi point(s) uses the same name for both the 2.4 and 5GHz band networks. This means your Wi-Fi network uses both radio bands. But keep in mind: while both bands can be used, your personal devices (a smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc.) will connect to only one radio band at any given time.
