5GHz hot spot menu entry for RaspberryPi 3 B+

Somehow there is a drop down menu when setting up a hot spot, but I can only choose 2.4GHz, despite the B+ model supporting 5GHz.


  • Good question. Our logs indicate that the country code detection fails:

    WifiApDialog: NO country code forbid 5GHz

    We will look into it, thanks for the hint.

  • It is fixed now and will be included into the next release. However, you will need to choose the correct locale setting, so the system knows what country it is in.

  • I live in Germany so it should work, when can I expect the next update?

  • It is ready, but still in the test phase. If we don't manage to finish it this week, it will be the next one.

    Obwohl Deutsch (Deutschland) eingestellt ist, wird mir ein Fehler angezeigt, welche Länder werden denn unterstützt?

  • Ist 5G weiterhin nicht auswählbar oder welchen Fehler meinst du?

  • I can confirm the error, when turning the AP in 5 GHz mode. There is something wrong with the driver, so we will have to take a deeper look. Sorry :disappointed:

    Der "Fehler" besteht weiterhin (V0.6.3), gibt es dazu schon irgendwelche Neuigkeiten?

  • Nein, leider kommen wir im Moment nicht dazu, uns dieses Problem genauer anzusehen.
