Re: Reduced battery life after recent software updates

Líder Sénior

Reason is, 5ghz is faster, but operates over a much shorter distance than 2.4ghz.  Just like when your phone searches for signal, it uses battery and runs it is also when your phone is searching for 5ghz  when 2.4 is stronger but perhaps not as fast.  So, unless this router is in the same room as the phone at night I propose the above reasoning.  If it is in the same room, or very close to each other, then there's another issue.
