Selecting 5 GHz in Smarthub for one device

Hi,

we have very poor download speeds and multiple users of bandwidth, how do I ensure my son's XBox defaults to the 5GHz channel on my smarthub to improve his gaming? Thanks, J.

You will still be using the same available bandwidth

If you want to restrict the xbox to 5Ghz anyway, either turn off 2.4Ghz wireless on the xbox if that is possible or split the frequencies on the hub and only enter a password for the 5Ghz network on the xbox. But as John says, you will still be sharing the available bandwidth.

Thanks guys. Other users in house mostly social media etc so shouldn't need much. Just thought they might hog unnecessary bandwidth from son's Xbox when used simultaneously. 

Many thanks again,

J
