No internet access on 2.4GHz band

When we try to access the internet using the 2.4GHz band nothing connects. Windows 10 says we are connected to the2.4GHz band and that we do have internet access. The Win10 troubleshooter cannot find any problems. The settings for both frequencies are the same.

Why can the 5GHz band connect but not the 2.4GHz?

    What device are you trying to connect to the internet using 2.4 GHz WiFi? Some laptops with wireless mice and keyboards use Bluetooth in that band. For those economy laptops you can't have both BT and WiFi at the same time. Naturally the computer sales experts 'forget' to tell you that.
