The product specs indicate that your notebook has a wifi card that only works on the 2.4 GHz band.


Anytime you see a wireless N card with a suffix that ends in b/g/n, that means it is a single band (2.4 GHz only) wifi card.


Dual band wifi N cards have suffixes that end in a/b/g/n or a/g/n.


Your model cannot connect to the 5.0 GHz wifi band.
