cannot connect to my wireless n 5ghz network

I am having a problem with my new hp I have an hpg71447us and a dual band wireless n router and I am unable to see or connect to the 5ghz connection.  Is the wireless card compatible? If not is there an hp part number to update this so it will work?

Re: cannot connect to my wireless n 5ghz network

I have the same problem on my dv6t.  Connection to the 2.4 G is fine and the wired connection is fine.  I have a Netgear Dual Band router.  Help please:smileysad:

Re: cannot connect to my wireless n 5ghz network

I have a new  DV5 laptop and a dual-band wireless Netgear router. I can see and connect to the 2.4GHz band just fine but cannot see the N band at all. I have two other laptops in the house that can see and connect to the N band with no trouble. I have loked for driver updates for the wireless adapter and it says right in the device manager that it is an N card but refuses to see any N networks. What gives?

To all,

If you can't see a 5GHz network, your wireless cards might not support it. Go to the Device Manager and post the names of your adapters. Not all 802.11n wireless cards support 5GHz networks..

Re: cannot connect to my wireless n 5ghz network

looking up the specs on your g71 it should have come with a 518436-001 broadcom 2.4 ghz only card. you can connect at N speeds, but.... if you have any b/g connections setting the 2.4 band to 20/40 to get those speeds, may reduce your b/g connection speeds...
