Xr500 5g band completely disappears

Is there a newer beta firmware I can try? Ever since the last stable firmware was pushed out I have had really inconsistent wifi issues with the bands dropping randomly or just really poor performance. Was never an issue before.

There isn't unfortunately. Are you using Smart Connect? If you disable this does it work any better when manually connecting to 5GHz?

Have you changed anything in Advanced WiFi Settings at all? Could you try making a guest WiFi network and see if that performs any better please?
