Anyone know how to force an Airport Express to use the 5GHz channel on my home network. I am using an Airport Extreme as my router. The Express is set to automatic and picks up the 2.4GHz channel, and I can't find a manual setting in order to change it.
I am trying to eliminate airplay drop-outs.
Thanks

So the Airport Express is join the network created by the Extreme?

In that case you need to make the change on the Extreme to broadcast a 5ghz network.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
