I purchased this laptop earlier today and was surprised that the wireless adapter was not dual band (I should have checked). I'm very blessed and have 250 mbps up/down fiber internet at home, so I really need 5GHz to take advantage of the speed. Is it possible to upgrade the adapter in this laptop or do I need to return it and choose a different laptop?
Here is what is currently installed; let me know if you have any questions. Thanks in advance for your help!

There are few options. Plesae check
(under Wireless Technologies section).

Thanks so much. I can't believe they sell computers with wireless adapters that aren't dual channels anymore. It seems so antiquated. I just never even thought to look because it seemed like it would be so standard. It's like having to check to see if a new car comes with a spare tire. But I really appreciate your help, so thank you.
