I Recently got a dual band wifi connection (2.4 and 5 Ghz). So my laptop will only show the 2.4Ghz wifi connections. I thought maybe my laptop does not support it so i went to "Run", entered "cmd", and then "netsh wlan show drivers". The results showed " Radio types supported : 802.11b 802.11g 802.11n".
Then I went to Device Manager and checked the wifi device. It is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 1000.
Next I went online to check my laptop's specifications and under Wireless Connectivity it says: Intel 1x1 802.11ac WLAN
Shouldn't this mean that my laptop supports the 5ghz band? So how should i make this work.
