    I have an iPad Air 2 Wifi, along with a Time Capsule ( newest version ) I have split the 5ghz and 2.4ghz signal. My iPhone and Macbook Retina can see the 5ghz, yet my iPad cannot?

    Any ideas?

    What kind of wifi router do you have?

    Odd. My iPhone and iPad Air 2 can use the 5ghz SSID fine.

    Sorted it, a simple reset of internet settings fixed.

    Reset internet settings on the device, or restarted your router?

    Come back and tell us if this fixed it permanently or if it starts doing it again.

    I connect to the condo WiFi service. If the Air 2 can't connect to WiFi then I'm not buying one.

    Kinda same thing here. Actually, how can i Know my iPad is using 5ghz. I have a new router, it's a Zyxel EMG2926-Q10A Dual-Band Wireless AC/N Gigabit Ethernet Gateway rented by my ISP. Right now, there are two SSID. One for 2.4 and one for 5ghz. A small utility program called SpeedSmart gives the same numbers (34-35 mbps) on either SSID I connect the iPad to. By the way, how do you reset Internet settings on an iPad and on a router as said above? Maybe someone can guide me through the process of obtaining light speed mbps. Thanks a lot.

    There are two ssid, one for 2,4 and one for 5.. When you know the name for 5, you can check from the settings if the name of the wifi connection is the same as routers 5ghz band. If not then forget it and setup the right one.
