Hi:

 

Your notebook has the Broadcom BCM43142 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi Adapter.

 

It only works on the 2.4 GHz wireless band.

 

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

 

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