Mobile hotspot: 5 GHz?



  • I have UBPorts Ubuntu Touch Edge running on a Poco F1 for a few months and almost everything has been working fine, and I am considering buying something like a PinePhone. However, one thing that seems to be missing is an option to set the mobile hotspot (i.e. creating a Wi-Fi hotspot using mobile data) to the 5 GHz band. Is that a Halium/libhybris issue or is that missing in Ubuntu Touch? If the latter, is there an unofficial way to force it to use 5 GHz (i.e. using the cli or by editing a file)?



  • @Vistaus You'll be dissappointed about Pinephone since it doesn't support 5GHz Wifi.

    Thanks, but that was not my question... I need a 5 GHz hotspot now for work, but not in the future when I buy a PinePhone and have different connectivity.



  • Anyone? There's gotta be a solution for this, even if it's cli-based solution...



  • @Vistaus
    I'm not sure there are many users here with a Poco F1.
    I don't even know if it can access both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, I guess you wouldn't ask if you cannot, but still I don't know.

    Sorry. I'm sure if someone has some knowledge about it they'll let you know.



  • But that still doesn't answer my question if this functionality is supposed to be present or not, i.e. does Ubuntu Touch support 5 Ghz hotspots on other devices or not (and if not, is there a (cli) workaround)?



  • @Vistaus
    I never saw an option allowing it.
    Maybe someone with deeper knowledge can answer this, but I doubt many people thought about it. 🤔
