Note the name of the WiFi network you are using. If your device is connected to a dual-band WiFi router, you can tell which band it’s using by looking at the name of the access point on your iPhone. That’s the way.
Swipe down from the top right corner of the screen (for iPhones without ” Home ” button) or swipe up from the bottom of the screen ( button For iPhone with “) Control Center (” Control Center “).. Start Page “).
Press and hold the Wi-Fi icon on the top left of the screen.

Find your router’s IP address. If you have a dual-band router, the easiest way to find out which band or frequency your phone is using is to assign each band a separate SSID or network name. To get started, first find out your router’s IP address. On your iPhone, you can find your IP address by following these steps:
Open your iPhone’s Settings menu or ” Settings “.
Booker ” WiFi “.
Click the “Info ” button next to the router’s network name .
In the “IPV4 Address ” section, scroll until you find the line of numbers next to “Router “ . Scroll down the router number is something like “188.8.131.52 ” .
Enter the address in your browser. Once you find the IP address, copy and paste it or enter it manually into your browser’s address bar. Opens the router’s web page, where you can view information about the router and change settings (such as setting the network name).
Log in with your router username and password. When you open your router’s page, you may be asked to log into your account. If you don’t know your username and password, the information is usually printed on a sticker on the side of your router.
The default username for most routers is ” admin “.
Locate the setting to create separate SSIDs for each band or network frequency. Since each router is different, there is no way to make it the same. You may need to refer to your router’s documentation or visit your router’s support site on how to set a separate network name for each band/frequency. Most likely you will find this setting in the ” Advanced ” tab or something similar.
If your router cannot automatically create separate names for each band/frequency, you may need to toggle a switch or check a box to enable this feature.
Give each bar a custom name. This makes it easy to see what frequencies your phone is reaching whenever you need it. For example, “Home-2.4GHz ” for a 2.4GHz network and “Home-5GHz ” for a 5GHz network. You can name it.
This is the easiest way to identify which band/frequency your phone is on, but Apple recommends not giving each band a unique name. If you use the same name for both bands, your phone will automatically switch bands to ensure you are always connected to the strongest signal.
Connect your iPhone to the desired band or frequency. Open the Settings menu or ” Settings” and select ” Wi-Fi “. Tap the name of the network you want to use and enter the password. A blue check mark appears next to the network name when the device is connected.
If the two bars are different, you may need to enter a different password for each bar when logging in for the first time.
