Ubuntu: BQ Aquaris E5 Wifi/3G Issues


I am using E5 in USA and my router has two SSID, with lower and higher Ghz differences. E5 Aquaris is not detecting the high frequency bandwith, why? how do i solve it? Also i could not get connected to my 3G either. Please help.


Same here. I noticed it didn't find my 5Ghz SSID when I set mine up also...and now finally checked why.

The phone's connectivity specs:

  • 3G HSPA+ (900/2100) - (B8/B1)
  • 2G GSM (850/900/1800/1900)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth® 4.0
  • GPS y A-GPS

(Had to get that from: http://www.bq.com/es/aquaris-e5-ubuntu-edition. Last week the UK link worked; bq must have changed their site.)

Looks like the phone is only Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (and maybe only the 2.4 Ghz flavor n). The 5Ghz in your router is likely a or ac, which isn't listed. (I found the IEEE 802.11 info on Wikipedia. That link didn't make the cut, since I can't post more than 2.)

I haven't tried putting in a sim card, but I don't think the technology and bands for 3G HSPA+ match the GSM carriers in the US.

In North America, GSM operates on the primary mobile communication bands 850 MHz and 1900 MHz.


Of course, it depends on your carrier and location.
