According to TikToker @cynthiaisdead, the nifty trick can triple a gamer’s internet speed.

In the video clip, she revealed that after a simple change of settings, her connection strength went from 105.4Mbps/7.1Mbps to 334Mbps/11.1Mbps in minutes.

Open the door for higher speeds

First go to your PS5 Settings and open network.

Inside network will be another Settings Option under the Connection Status tab.

Choose Settings again and click Set up internet connection.

Hover over your home network and a menu will appear on the right.

Press in this menu WiFi frequency bands.

This gives you the opportunity to change your network frequencies.

The PS5 network settings are set to Automatic by default.

But you should change it 5GHz option and choose OK.

No luck?

If your PS5 says it doesn’t support the 5GHz switch, it will automatically switch back to the automatic setting.

Instead, you can try an Ethernet cable that connects a device directly to your wireless router.

You can also try moving your router closer to the console, but away from “Wi-Fi-killing” objects like mirrors, smart speakers, and refrigerators.
