as the subject says, I noticed that Xperia X is capable of 5GHz wifi but when I enable tethering it trasmits only on 2.4GHz and single channel, limiting the wifi link speed to 72 megabit.

I use the tethering in crowded places, so I would like to have 5GHz wifi (maybe as only frequency, but dual 2.4 and 5 would be okay too).

Does anyone know how to do so? If not in sailfish, at least in android (even with third party app)?

Note that android lacks this as well, I read online that some samsung do have the option to select 5GHz for tethering, maybe it's a samsung customization.

Thank you

This is great feature! Even more when alternative operating systems do not have this feature.

Andorid Oreo+ beyond allow this. Blackberry OS10 (R.I.P.) allowed this on Classic, Passport and other TOTL OS10 phones. Sony Experia XA Plus, even if being an a/b/g/n phone, with Oreo+ does not allow this, due to Sony customized Andorid version. Shame on SONY!!!!

This type is basically applicable for any brands of router, but the default IP address and username and password might be different from the Linksys routers. https://routerlogin.vip/linksys/
