How to Configure a Dual Band MOdem


Aug 19, 2015
I've built a new PC using an Asus Z790 motherboard having Wi-Fi 6E (2x2 Wi-Fi 6E (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax)) which supports the 2.4/5/6GHz frequency bands. I also now have a new fibre to cabinet 75Mbs broadband service supplied with a Zyxel DX3301-TO
dual-band DSL modem covering both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.

Is there a way of configuring Windows to use both bands simultaneously or do I have to choose whichever band gives the best signal? The modem can be configured to use the same or different networks names for each band. Which should be used?
