    Just got a good deal on a 2016 13" MBPro w/touchbar and 512 SSD.
    Wanted to clean wipe it and reinstall OS, but it cannot enter internet recovery, gives me a -2006F error.

    I reset the NVRAM and SMC before attempting another internet recovery but gave me same error.

    Normal recovery however works fine, i formatted the SSD and reinstalled Sierra from there.
    Should i be worried about anything?! :)

    Did you try connecting to a different wi-fi network?

    yea and it gave me -2005F
    nice variation :)

    I'm using 5ghz spectrum, can it be incompatible and only recognize 2.4ghz?

    That is usually because you are using a wifi encryption type not recognized by Internet recovery. Just to get this done, can you just open up the wifi with no password?

    WPA2-PSK not recognized?

    I can't remember the list of supported wifi types for this, and Apple has removed the tech document that listed it. I recall WEP and WPA Enterprise won't work... but don't remember what else was on the list. It would be worth a try just top open it up for this just to see if that fixes it.
