Hi:

 

Most HP consumer notebooks do not come with dual band wireless network adapters.

 

The easiest way to check if your notebook has a single band or dual band wireless N card is this:

 

Go to the device manager and click to expand the Network Adapters device category.

 

There you will see the names and model numbers of the ethernet and wireless adapters.

 

If the suffix of the model of your notebook's wireless network adapter ends in b/g/n, it is only a single band (2.4 Ghz) card.

 

If it ends in a/b/g/n or a/g/n, then it is a dual band (2.4/5.0 HGz) wireless card.
