Samsung Galaxy S7 not linking to 5GHZ home wife

Hello,

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 and I can't get internet while linked up to the 5GHZ wifi.  I can get internet on my 2.4 GHZ setup but not the 5GHZ.  I have made sure to turn off Smart Network Switch.  I have made sure to make the 2.4 and 5 different user names.  I link up to 5GHZ and it says Internet may not be available and a message comes up that says Can not connect to the internet.  Try another network.  When I click on the 5GHZ user name, it says Network speed:  Very strong (173 Mbps), Security WPA2 PSK, and I'm not going to show IP address unless necessary.  Can someone please give me some insight on this situation?  Thank you.

Yes.  I finally figured it out.  For some reason the 5Ghz wifi was set to static IP instead of DHCP. Once I finally put it on DHCP it worked.  Thanks for the reply.  I appreciate it.  And..... wives are ALWAYS irritated.
