I'm having the same problem. I was using a Netgear 2000 extender but replaced it with an LP-Link extender to handle much faster speeds with an xFinity feed. My HP laptop recognizes the extender but not the 5G feature. All my phones and the Amazon Fire recognize the 5G but not the laptop. Is there a software fix for this?   MG

I have on my laptop Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn wifi M.2 Adaptor

It does not detect any 5G network broadcasted from the internet router. how can you help me check issues or upgrade the adaptor?

It can only detect 2.5G network which is very slow and has high loss in connection

@Brijesh_S Welcome to HP Community!

 

A few things to remember are mentioned below: 

The compatibility of your router with the wireless card, 

If the wireless card is 1x1: supports 2.4 GHz and below - slow connection and download/upload speed, 

If it's 2x2 or more: support 5 GHz and above - Fast connected and speed. 

 
Here are your Product specifications: Click here for details. 

 

Have a nice day!!

Thanks @praveen196, but I already tried those solutions and my network adapter does not have the 802.11a/g/n or the 802.11ac radio frequency.

 

Thanks for the support.

In that case, I would suggest you try creating a new user account on your computer.
