Hi 

My HP Pavilion 15-P158sa Wlan does not see 5Ghz Bandwidth from my router. My dell laptop does see it and can connect.

Wlan adaptor is  Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi

 

most probably this hardware does not support 5Ghz.

 

Can I upgrade it? What is suitable adaptor I can buy?

To add, the laptop model is touchscreen and the adaptor is single antenna

I'm having a similar problem with my HP Spectre. It is not picking up wifi though my other laptop is.

I found out that this wireless adaptor is not upgradable. The antenna cable is not compatible with ac wireless adaptors. The best and cheapest option is to buy a USB Wireless Adaptor with ac capability. I bought one from eBay and I am now able to see and connect to 5Ghz bandwidth and have now speed over 200mbps download and upload. 

 

The one I bought is:
