NIGHTHAWK MK62 (MR60) 5Ghz setting for Nintendo Switch

Hi,

 

I have a problem that my Nintendo Switch can not connect to nighthawk mk62 using 5Ghz Channel. I have searched around, Nintendo Switch is support for 5Ghz connection but only using Channel 36 to 64 and 100 to 140. In my MR60, there are only few channels (36,40,44,48,149,153,157,161) can be selected. I can setup this in my pervious router (ASUS). Can anyone tell me that if it can be set in MR60 too?

Hello buddiz87, 

 

The MR60 only supports specified channels and not a range of channels as you mentioned.

In France, my MR60 router supports channels 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, 11, 13, 44, 64, 100, 136.

Maybe by using the firmware for France, you could use the right frequency for your use:

In any case, you will be able to view all the content in English, if you wish, by changing the language.

Another possibility would be to choose the European region. To do this, connect to your router, go to Advanced, Advanced Setup, Wireless Settings, Region, and choose Europe.
