4G refers to a cellular network. 5G on a router refers to a wifi band.
So if you are really asking if your 4G LTE phone can make wireless calls using your 5 Gig WiFi, all phones with WiFi built in the last few years are capable of running on both 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi bands. Your service provider may not support WiFi calling in your area, and you may need to change your phone settings or add an app to make it work.
To compare, Skype uses your phone's 3G or 4G data, not WiFi, to place phone calls to internet addresses. HTH!
I apologize for any confusion but this is a common question. When it comes to home wireless 5G refers to 5 gigahertz which is the frequency that the network is using compared to 2G which is 2.4 gigahertz. With cell phone service the G stands for generation so 4G is the 4th generation of cell phone service in regards to data.
So there is no way to compare the two types as they are in no way the same. I do hope this helps clear up confusion.

I didn't know if my phone was compatible. 5g network doesn't show on listing. 2G fine. Mostly want to stream without switching networks.
So....what phone do you have?
Are you asking if your cell phone can connect to your 5GHz home wifi network? The answer to that is "It depends on the make and model of the phone."
What? O said the phone doesn't have 5g. A502DL (model)
Are you referring to an Alcatel TCL LX phone commonly offered through Tracfone? From what I can tell it does not support the 5 GHz wifi band.
