    Wi-fi card upgrade

    I've recently switched to a cheaper Internet Service Provider, one of the reasons being that I would get three times the speed. Instead, my speed has gone down, and now I can't even access my bank on my mobile phone when I'm in the house. I phoned the ISP, and they told me that the Wi-Fi card in my PC was only 2.4 ghz, whereas it should be 5 ghz. I can't understand this, because accessing the app on my phone shouldn't be affected by the Wi-Fi card that's in my PC, I wouldn't have thought? Can anyone advise on this please?

    Your PC and phone are independent of each other. If anything, it would be your router and modem that are the common points of connection.

    Difference between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz:

    I assume that you have set up your phone to connect to the new router or new router settings for the new ISP.
