    5GHz WiFi not working on Picoreplayer

    I have PCP v6.1.0 running on a Raspberry Pi 4. When I scan for access points, I only see 2.4GHz APs (even though I have a 5GHz AP myself and know there are others shown by my Android). This happens no matter what country code I set through the PCP interface. Is there another setting I should change to make things work? My AP is transmitting on channels 157 + 153.

    If you are using one SSID for both 2.4 and 5, then I think it is up to the router to force the client to a certain channel. Mine always selects a 5g channel. You can force connection on a certain channel, but that cannot be done while connected. Make a script. Then run the script in the user commands. Make if you select the wrong channel, I think it will revert to auto selecting

    /usr/local/etc/init.d/wifi stop
    iwconfig wlan0 channel xx
    /usr/local/etc/init.d/wifi start
