Wiki: Connect to a Wireless Network but use 2 GHz versus 5 GHz for External access

Hi All,

I setup up my MikroTik router per this Wiki below:

https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Connect_ ... s_Network

What's causing me some minor issue is the range for the external connection WiFi (not sure of the technical name you'd use). The connection for users uses the 5 GHz frequency, which has much less range. The 2 GHz frequency is what's used to connect the router to the Cellular Hotspot (in my case). Does anyone have a script or walk-through to set up that time of connection to an available wireless network, but instead using the 2 GHz connection for external user access, versus using the 2 GHz to connect to the available Wireless Network (hotspot in my case). I appreciate any help. Thanks.!

So use 2ghz to connect to hotspot and 5ghz to connect to users is the only good possibility.
THe fact that 5ghz range is limited is just reality.
