Welcome to the forum.

You go into your TV network settings and select the 5GHz SSID. However:

1. The TV must be 5GHz capable. 

2. If you have a Hub Zero (2704n) router this has no 5GHz band.

3. If you have a Hub One you must first separate the bands, see https://community.plus.net/t5/My-Router/2-4ghz-and-or-5ghz-best-practice/m-p/1351966#M840

Special techniques not dissimilar to voodoo are used for makes and models that nobody knows..

 

Dance around the room in a circle three times shouting "TV on, TV on, i like my wifi and TV on"

Then hop on the spot 5 time while spinning round..

Then jump to the TV in one step (if you do it in two or three jumps then it induces a curse upon you instead). When you land in front of the TV you then have to tap it 5 times to signify you want the 5GHz range

Once done you have to finalize the process by unplugging it, counting to 1648 - incrementing the number once every two seconds (so it'll take a while) and then when you reach that last number you have to do the circle round the room thing backwards 3 times.

You should now find that it just miraculously works!

Says the person who didn't tell us anything about the TV in the first place such as the make or model!

 

At least I made an effort to spend more than 20 seconds typing which is more than could be said about you.

I remember when TVs had knobs that made them turn on/off, change channel.  None of this lounging around with a remote in hand.

Has anyone seen my signature, it's gone missing.

The pleasantries of the 80s eh?!

Better times weren't they, although we got great tech these days i don't like the way society or the country is going.

Agreed.

 

Society seems to be too much about me, me, me and no thought for anyone else.
