5GHz channel very slow speeds

I got a new hub 3.0 today and since setting it up I noticed that on certain devices the internet was practically not working it was so slow registering speeds of less than 1mbps.

After investigating I noticed that it was on devices connected to the 5GHz channel, I’ve since split the channels up so I can manually connect to 2.4, but I’m wondering why the 5 would be so slow?

Perhaps a 30second pinhole reset would fix the 5ghz signal

Hmm yeah I thought so too but no luck with that, I also changed the coax cable to the spare I have but that didn’t work either

Not sure, I’ve got no devices to connect an ethernet cable to, the wireless speeds on 2.4 are around 80-100mbps though if that’s any use.

Cluttered 5 GHz channel from neighbouring networks perhaps?

Could be, I live in a built up area and there’s a few virgin wifi signals knocking about
