Customers often ask:
"I have both 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz networks in my home, Which should I use?"
Hydrow is capable of connecting to either 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz. Which one provides the best connection will depend greatly on Hydrow's placement in your home. Use the following to determine which suits your setup best:
- 2.4Ghz networks have longer range and will penetrate signal better through walls. If Hydrow is one or more rooms away from your router, connecting to a 2.4Ghz network will likely provide you better reception and stronger connection.
- 5Ghz networks are less prone to interference and sometimes faster, but they don't go through walls well. If Hydrow is in the same room with a clear line-of-sight to your router, connecting to a 5Ghz network will provide the best experience
If you're still not sure what to use after reading the suggestions above, we would suggest starting with the 2.4Ghz network. This will be the better choice in most cases.
