Connecting to a Wi-Fi network
The headset also supports the Wi-Fi 6E standard. You can connect to 6 GHz wireless networks in regions where the headset is certified to use Wi-Fi 6E.
- Currently, the headset can only use
Wi-Fi 6E in select regions. Because
Wi-Fi 6E is still a new standard, availability and channels will be dependent on local legislation in your country.
For details, see In what regions can Wi-Fi 6E be used?.
- Before the headset can detect 6 GHz wireless networks, you need to connect it to a 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz network first. You can then scan for 6 GHz networks to connect to.

- Select Connectivity.
Nearby 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks will be listed.
- Select the Wi-Fi network to connect to.
