    Hey! I have a problem because my laptop can not see the 5GHz network and I do not know what to do.
    Network Card: Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wirelles Adapter
    If you have any idea, write it :D

    Welcome. AR956x is a card designed for 2.4GHz, so it's no wonder that it does not connect to 5GHz networks. If for some reason you have to connect to 5GHz networks - you have to replace the network card.

    I have a similar problem - does the Intel Centrino Wireless N-1030 card support 5GHz? I have the impression that on the first day of use of the new router (Nokia G-240W-C) the wifi card detected this band, but now I'm combining in options and I can not find a solution to switch from 2.4 to 5Ghz. I would like to add that the other device - the phone can easily find a 5GHz band. greetings

    You do this:
    Open the web browser, any.
    You are opening the www.google.pl website
    You enter: "Intel Centrino Wireless N-1030"
    You are overwriting enter.
    In the first line you can see:
    Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 1030, Single Band Technical data

    SINGLE BAND, is the key word here.

    The option to change bandwidth in Intel PROSet / Wireless WIFI being network adapter software is slightly misleading, where you can choose between: mixed band, 2.4GHz band and 5GHz. Hence the question to specialists ... PS. the biting instruction was basically unnecessary, but I noticed that this is the case for people who already know EVERYTHING on specialist forums ;-) Thank you and best regards.

    Standard software for all cards confidently.
    A bitter comment not because they know everything, only because they have seen every question that can be answered in a few seconds literally thanks to Google :P
