Hi, I have Fold 5 unlocked activated on Verizon. I got FIOS service (1gig speed) and the CR1000a router with E3200 extender. I named 2.4, 5 and 6 with 3 different labels and turned off self organizing network. This way I can chose which device AI can connect to 2.4 or 5 or 6. My Fold 5 does not recognize WiFi6E network. FIOS told me to ask Samsung if Fold 5 is certified for WiFi6E and WPA3.

Can someone please confirm Fold 5 working on WiFi6E? Thanks.

Yes it absolutely is. Keep in mind Wi-Fi 6E does not have distance like your standard 5 gigahertz channel does what I recommend doing if you're not seeing is logging into your router if possible and finding a better channel for clarity using a channel analyzing software. You will see E next to your connection. Screenshot_20231022_160357_Samsung Members.jpgScreenshot_20231022_160551_Samsung Members.jpg

@metamobile My Fold 5 is connected via 802.11ax (Wifi 6E) to my Eero mesh network.
