I have a Windows 7 laptop which does not show 5 GHz wireless lans in the wireless network settings.
How can I find out if the 5 GHz range is just not configured (i.e. Switched on) or if this is not supported by the hardware?
Laptop is asus. 4 months old. Windows 7 Premium N55SL series
The laptop has a centrino wireless n 1030 and when i look in its properties, advanced tab i see:
802.11n channel width for band 2.4 and value is 20 Mhz only (other option there is auto)
802.11n mode (opt. there are enabled or disabled) and its enabled
ad hoc channel 802.11b/g value here is 11 (you can add or subtract numbers)
ad hoc QoS mode here value is WMM disabled
other blahblah values and later i see
wireless mode and value is 3.802.11b/g (other opt. are /b or /g)
Driver is 220.127.116.11
I have a new fiber router that can broadcast on both frequencies so I would like to use them both (router is ok. My phone sees both the wifi networks)
