Trying to connect to 5ghz network connection. Not showing in list of networks. Shows up on phones and tablets but not desktop computer. Anyone have this issue and what, if anything, you did about it?

Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11 ac 1x1 WiFi + Bluetooth 4.2 Combo Adapter (MU-MIMO supported) HP part # L17365-005.
