Sony A7RIV cannot join 5G WIFI

Hi,

Anyone has any success in joining 5G Wifi network with the new 7R4 ?

It seems that even if I select 5Ghz as the wifi speed, it still does not join ... It can see it, and if I try to enter the password, I get "network not found" after a bit of wait.

The only way I made it work is to use WPS push, and then it only works on 2.4Ghz.

The transfer speed has been greatly improved from 7R3, it is faster now, even though the files are 50% bigger (non compressed RAW are ~ 120Mb, as opposed to 80Mb before).

In FTP mode, it pushes files with a speed of 6-8Mbps, so if we can make it connect to a 5G network, I would think it would be 3-4 times faster. That would be a few seconds per file, which is not bad.

Of course, if you have a full card to upload, might as well to use a card reader.

Thanks for any feedback.
