Ethernet fine, wi-fi (via dongle) is patchy

Hi

I just switched today and the connection via wi-fi is slow (8mbs) and drops out completely after only 2 minutes.

Ethernet's fine (32mbs and constant).

My wi-fi connection's via a USB dongle, which worked fine until the switch to Plusnet.

I've tried reinstalling the drivers but that made no difference. Any ideas?

Managed to resolve issue by switching router to 5GHZ.

This article was helpful, in case anyone experiences same problem:
