Nokia 7.2 hotspot on 5Mhz band not working

Is this a known software bug ? Or does it work for someone ?
My 7.2 works fine as a "client" in both 2.4Hz and 5Mhz wifi networks.
Also when I enable the phone as a hotspot on 2.4MHz band, other devices can find and use the hotspot.
But when I change the hotspot to use 5Mhz band, none of my other devices detects that wifi network as available.
That applies to another phone, a tablet and two computers.
To my understanding this must be a software issue, as the device works as a client in 5MHz networks.
I've tried in conditions where it also can't be about the signal being not received, if it would be transmitted.
All tried client devices are known to support also 5MHz band and also in practice work in other 5MHz wifi networks.

    Yes ! All mentioned frequencies should be GHz, not MHz, and especially not just Hz.

    makes me wonder who you cregox are -so interesting timing.

    Yes now it works also on 5 GHz

    It did not work just a few weeks ago when I last tried. Must have been fixed in the latest update just yesterday.

    Anyway fine that you had me retry it today.

    you can always google me... 😆

    thank you for the reply.

    it still doesn't work for me. perhaps in a few weeks... do you see any significant difference on the hotspot quality?

    Time will tell the quality. I've had only seldom some performance issues with it.

    Most important is that it will now be away from disturbing all the bluetooths, especially when I'm driving.

    The hotspot feature doesn't work properly on my Nokia 7 Plus since the last Android update.

    NOKIA this really sucks! I have to use the hotspot daily, so in order to make it work I have to restart my phone.

    It's a software issue for sure.

    Update: on 2.4 Gz works, but on 5 Gz doesn't work
