My Nokia Windows phone speaks only 2.4 but the rest of my devices do both. Although some devices dont like the high 5g channels.

I guess the question is how long (or old) is a piece of string. Or do you mean new devices Weaver?

I mean both; all devices still in use and all new devices. I am wondering whether to require some visitors to use 5GHz, but I suspect this would be a really bad idea.
