Solved!

what wireless speed will I get on a 15-p287sa

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-p287
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have the HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-p287sa (Touch) (ENERGY STAR) and when I choose to connect to my Virgin Media Hub wirelessly, I am only shown the 2G connection and not the 5G which I can connect to using my Android phone and iPad.

 

Surely this cannot be right with such a modern laptop!

 

I have noticed in the Driver window/Network adapter this entry at the top mentioning 2.4ghz. Could this be the reason and, if so, can I change anything?:-

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

 

Your machine uses:

 

   802.11b/g/n (1x1) and Bluetooth 4.0 combo (Miracast compatible)

 

Therefore it can only work on 2.4GHz Access Point (AP - router).

 

Regards.

BH
