Your question is incomplete. Are you not able to connect to 5GHz networks is what you mean? Please reset network preferences. Change the channel in your router settings. @Caomhin can you please guide him on which settings he has to change in the router? I don't have a fibre network so I neither face these issues nor I have to change the settings😅😂.
Thanks for the tag @Akshat Shehgal
Make sure the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz have different SSIDs and also ensure you have 2.4Ghz channel set to below 11 and 5 Ghz channel between 40 and 100. Check your router manual on how to do this. said:

How To Fix Common Wi-Fi Problems In Android
Seeing your Screeshot I assume you want to state that no 5GHz wifi connection showing, Right?
2.5 GHz has greater range so you can use it even if you are not on the same room or two room far.
But the same is not the case with 5GHz you cannot use it at far distance , you have to be in the same room for great and reliable connection.
Sometimes placement of wifi router affect the connectivity and results in the device connection failure.

This is nice information to have, will keep that in mind. Thanks for sharing.
I had an issue before in my old 6T, it wouldn't see the 5Ghz channel, so I dropped the channels to lower than what I mentioned above, worked fine after that. Not sure if it's the issue here, but worth a try.
Let's hope it works for him.
By the way do you have any dedicated thread related to wifi or have created one ?
Would be good to know.🙌
I don't, but I might look into creating one, now that you mention it. 👍
Good to know you are considering the idea as it would be nice to have.
Many will be benefited.
Looking forward 🙌👍.
Hello my friend, yes there are several 5ghz wifi networks, the problem is that my smartphone only finds 2.4ghz networks. I already looked in the smartphone settings but I couldn't solve the problem. Even at my house the modem has 2.4ghz and 5ghz, my son's smartphone a OnePlus 5 normally connects at 5ghz and my new smartphone the 9R can see the 5ghz network if you want.
I am very disappointed in my new smartphone.
Have you tried the suggestions I and others gave above?
Hello my friend, yes I tried to reset the smartphone's network settings and the smartphone itself reseted from the factory.
The only procedure I haven't tried yet was to change the channel range on the modem, because my son's Smartphone OnePlus 5 normally finds my 5ghz network.
Ppsso even change the channel of my wifi network to those mentioned above but what frustrates me the most is knowing that even if this alternative works I can only connect to the 5ghz network of my residence. if I go to a friend's or relative's house, I won't be able to use a 5ghz ppis network, my new smartphone just can't find such a signal frequency. This is extremely disheartening.
I believe that a OnePlus should make available in a Hot fix to fix the urgent problem, because from what I could notice here on the forum, the neighborhoods oitroa 9R user are reporting the problem to find a 5ghz wi-fi network.
Dear friend @Caomhin Even in the post of the link below a user reports the same problem that I am experiencing with my 9R, and the member @Ruqhaiya Taskeen @RuqhaiyaTaskeen suggested that maybe he had some request for such problem.
I honestly don't know what else to do. All that remains for me is the disappointment.
