It is a hardware limitation of the wifi adapter.


You would need to replace it with one that is dual band.


Doing that could be problematic, as there may only be one wifi antenna cable connected to the single band wifi adapter your PC has in there now, and all but one dual band wifi adapters need two antenna cables connected to them in order to work correctly.
