Windows XP and Wifi 6?

Hello I have a RAX75 Wifi 6 router.

I'd like to get an old Windows XP computer connected to the internet. The computer sees the 2.4 ghz band fine and tries to connect, but never does. The 5 ghz band is nowhere to be seen.

 

Is this even possible? To connect an old, clunky computer to my new wifi 6 router?

Thanks

Hello danj77z, 

 

Does your old computer support WiFi 6? If not, you may need to disable WiFi 6 (aka AX WiFi) in the router's settings.
