How to Determine if the Notebook has a Single band or dual band wireless card

Hi everyone,

                      how to find if there is a single band Wireless card or dual band wireless card in the notebook and whether I will be able to connect to 2.4GHz & 5GHz networks if I have a Intel b/g/n wireless card and a N-router.

 

any tools to find out the details

 

 

And any updated on the OpenGL issue with Switchable graphics

How to Determine if the Notebook has a Single band or dual band wireless card

Hi:

 

Please go into your device manager and under the wireless adapter section what is the full model number of your intel wireless adapter?

 

You can normally tell just by the model number.

 

Another way to check is to go into your router's configuration menu and select broadcast from the 5.0 GHz band only.  If your notebook can connect then you have a dual band card. You may have to set up a new wireless connection just like you did when you first got the notebook.

 

If it can't connect on the 5 GHz band, then you don't have a dual band card.
