As it stands, the only way to use wireless is to use the Sky Q wireless mesh as set up during installation. This has both a 2.4GHz and a 5GHz network. In most cases, the 2.4GHz network is used to provide a wireless hotspot if you have Sky broadband, but it can also be used for TV data sent to the Mini boxes. Actual streaming takes place over the 5GHz network, as this has the required bandwidth. One of the main pieces of advice in the forums is to disable the 2.4GHz modes on the Sky Q Mini boxes. This forces the boxes to use 5GHz networking, which sounds great, but you shouldn’t have to do this at all. In fact, in a properly set up Sky Q system, all streaming is performed over 5GHz, and 2.4GHz is only used for Wi-Fi hotspots, as a failover and for some updates. In other words, streaming problems are not caused by the 2.4GHz network!Sadly, while you can force a Mini box to join your home wireless network it can only do so on the 2.4GHz band, which isn’t fast enough for streaming live TV, so don’t do this.
