Is my Pavillion capable of using the 5g band on my router?  My cell and PS/4 are able to find and connect to 5g band.

Hi:

 

The Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter is a single band (2.4 Ghz) wifi adapter.

 

It cannot transmit or receive on the 5.0 GHz wifi band.

 

Anytime you see a wireless N adapter with a suffix that ends in bgn, that means it is a single band 2.4 Ghz only wifi adapter.

 

Dual band wireless N adapters have suffixes that end in abgn or agn.
