b/g/n can only connect to the 2.4GHz network. To connect to the 5GHz networ you need an ac/b/g/n module or a USB dongle.

So you can either replace the network module.

Your notebook has only one antenna so you need to find an ac module with a single antenna

On page 50 of service manual you can see the steps to replace the module


or you can get a wifi USB dongle



Hope it helps.
