I have a N600 Wireless Dual Band Router model WNDR3400. My question(s) is that if I connect with a wired cable, will I be connected to the 5ghz and avoid interference with those on the 2.4ghz connection?
For example, I have a wired connection with my Playstation 3 but i believe the Playstation 3 incapable of detecting the 5ghz when I do a wireless scan. Does this mean when I connect with a wired cable with the ps3 I use the 2.4ghz connection with other users and getting interference if they're doing something like streaming?
And finally, if my Laptop is unable to detect the 5.ghz connection does that mean I need some sort of adapter? Or does it have to do something with the settings. Its enabled and is on the default channel.
[Sorry one more question, where do I go to see who is currently using the internet connection in the setup]

Hello, I have a HP Pavilion Model 14-n014nr with Atheros Model AR5B125 and i wanted to upgrade my wifi card to pick up the 5ghz frequency band on my dual band router. Am i able to upgrade to any notebook wifi card that supports AC?Read other answers
So about 2 months ago, I purchased the AC53 when I moved in to a house share.
We have Virgin Media SuperHub that does both 2.4ghz and 5ghz.
When I installed it, it worked fine and connected excellently to the 5G band, a few days ago however the 5G connection disappeared off my list and now it always connects me to the 2.4ghz band.
Tried resetting my SuperHub and re-installing the drivers and software utility for the AC53 but alas it doesn't show. My phone however can find and connect to the 5G band.
I'm a bit confused as where to go from here!
Any help would be much appreciated!
After re-installing you can't connect at all or just only connect to 2.4?
Can you run ipconfig /all and post back the results.

do you mean a router
or as part of the laptop spec ?
what router do you have and does it work in dual band simultaneously
the advantage of the 5ghz signal is if you are in a crowded 2.4ghz environment then 5ghz helps avoid interference - also the coverage is wider - although the 5ghz router i have linksys - does not seem to be
if your current router only works in 2.4ghz , then no advantage in the short term
some routers are advertised as dual band - but you have to choose between 2.4 or 5 ghz and so ALL devices will need to support 5ghz
I want to upgrade my home network to support HD streaming over Wifi. I am considering getting an 802.11ac router and replacing my laptops Wifi network card with one that supports the new Wifi 802.11ac standard.
On my home network I want to connect a TV set top box to the router over Cat6 but my laptop is the only device that will be connecting over Wifi. I have a Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Wifi card which supports dual stream but only one band: 2.4Ghz.
It looks like my laptop only has two internal antenna cables and for this reason I am thinking I cannot avail of triple stream Wifi-N 450Mb/s + 450Mb/s on a simultaneous dual band N900 router. I am stuck with a theoretical max of 300Mb/s on 2.4Ghz under Wifi-N and/or 866Mb/s on 5Ghz under Wifi-AC.
Here are my questions:
1. If I get a simultaneous dual band router can my laptop stream an HD movie on the 5Ghz band and at the same time download say a Youtube video on the 2.4Ghz band? I ask that because I'd like to get a such a router and preserve every ounce of bandwidth on its 5Ghz band for streaming movies from the set top box to my laptop... not have to share it for web browsing needs.
2. Would it be a better solution, or even possible, to install a third internal antenna in my laptop and get a triple stream 802.11n class Wifi card (such as the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) and Wifi-N Class router OR should I buy an 802.11ac router and get the better bandwidth it offers... Read more
You can stream HD movies fine at 150Mbps or even less but it depends on how much of the bandwidth is being used by your neighbors. This can be a big problem in some areas. You won't be able to use both frequency's at once.
Finding the best clean channels to use are what matters most on 2.4 GHz, channel bonding comes in handy sometimes but works best when the channels are mostly clear.
5Ghz is better in this respect because hardly anyone is using it so you tend to get all the bandwidth to yourself but the drawback with 5GHz frequency is that it won't go through walls worth a darn so it's really only useful for open area's outdoors or for large rooms.
I'm running the Asus AC66U router and the Asus PCI-e AC66 NIC which usually runs about 877.5-1.1 Gb. I can stream multiple YouTube video's while watching movies although I could also do this using the 2.4GHz frequency at 300Mbps.

It has stock 2.4ghz wifi, which i know is pretty standard. My question is, is there a different internal wifi card i can replace the stock on with that will give me access to both 2.4 ghz and 5.0 ghz. I have been considering going the usb adapter route for both wifi bands but would like to keep some usb ports avalable without needing to get a small hub. Any info would be Appreciated! Thanks

Hello everyone, I definitely need some help here.
I have been using my WGA600N Linksys Gaming Adapter to connect my Xbox 360 S to my wireless router two floors above for years now. The main reason I bought it was to give the 360 access to the 5 GHz frequency on my dual-band routers, which I have heard (and experienced) is better for wireless gaming than a 2.4 frequency.
However, after switching routers from the old Linksys E3000 to the new EA4500, I can no longer access the 5 GHz connection through this adapter, or on the Xbox at all it seems. I have tried nearly everything I can think of that worked in the past (which seems to be anything except the lousy setup CD), mainly connecting the WGA600n to my laptop with an ethernet and accessing its setup utility using a static IP address (I hope I said that correctly). For example:
setting the 5 and 2.4 Ghz frequencies to either the same or different SSIDs
setting the password to these frequencies to matching and non-matching passcodes
changing the visibility of the 5GHz network from non-broadcasting to a broadcasting signal
setting the adapter to search for 5GHz only, not mixed 2.4/5
Those are the most obvious that I can think of, but there are probably more in the hours I have wasted on this. The strange thing is...
the adapter can connect to the 2.4 frequency, not the 5.
How do I know this? When trying to connect to a 'mixed' signal, the adapter constantly searches for channels (as far as I can tell). When connect... Read more

I recently got the newest NETGEAR router device, the NETGEAR Nighthawk X8 AC5300 Smart WiFi Router, and I am unable to connect to the 5GHz WiFi it provides on its Tri-band WiFi. I am currently only on its 2.4GHz WIFI, which I assume is lesser than the 5G. I am able to connect to the 5GHz on my smart phone, so I know it exists from the router. I am running a windows 8.1 currently on a desktop on an HP Envy 700-213 Desktop PC.
Edit: My computer supports 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n radio types - which supports 5GHz WiFi
My adapter is a Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter
Any ideas for why I am unable to connect to this WiFi?
The most likely explanation is that the wifi adapter in your HP Envy 700-213 doesn't support the 5Ghz band.
If you really want to connect at 5Ghz you will need to get a new wifi adapter for your computer.
Hello, I bought a new Cisco Linksys E2500, Advanced Dual-Band N Router. I am going to convert from wired ports around the house to wireless. And received a new tablet and I must go wireless now. I have not set up the new tablet as yet. The new router has a 5Ghz band and 2.4 GHz band. I gave each band it's own user name and password. However, my wireless signal can only bring up the 2.4GHz. I called Linksys and they said the 5GHz was for heavy gaming and the 2.4 was for every day wireless use. I am not a gamer. Would there be a reason to keep this split type of gigahertz? I have tried to connect to the 5GHz band but it automatically defaults to the 2.4 band. Is the speed slower on the 2.4GHz band? Thank you!
It all depends on the receiver each device has. Some devices have 2.4GHz and some have 5GHz.
For example, my phone can pick up 5GHz, whilst my PC can only pick up 2.4GHz.
I thought I had a double NAT problem, online somewhere it said go into Bridge Mode, CSR said the ISP router is already in that mode.
I have a cable router as my ISP, hooked up to a ASUS router (2.4GHz and 5GHz) for the house. Have 10 devices on the ASUS. On the Cisco ISP router, I got my Desktop computer in port 2 running to my Ethernet port on the back of my computer, and ASUS in port 1 which goes to the blue input port on the ASUS. I turned off the WiFi on the Cisco router.
The question I have is how can I log into my ASUS router when hard-wired into port 2 on the CISCO router.
CISCO is 192.168.0.1 - ASUS is using port one 192.168.0.10, Computer is using port two 192.168.1.194
ASUS is 192.168.1.1 - Can only access this router when connected to it via WiFi.
Well I am connected to both now - the WiFi on the ASUS and hardwired to the CISCO.
I have both routers open. ASUS 192.168.1.1 and Cisco 192.168.0.1
This problem seems to be artificially solved.

Is it odd that, according to InSSIDer, the 2.g Ghz band signal is stronger (-45) than that of the 5Ghz band (-61)? My router is a Netgear WNDR4500. Just wondering. Thanks.
It really depends on where your wireless router is compared to your computer.
5 GHz signals are effected more by walls, distance, etc. than 2.4 GHz.
I have recently acquired a faster USB adapter (NETGEAR N900) for my connection. I have a NETGEAR N600 router. I can choose from 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. My connection runs very well on 2.4Ghz, I have a limit speed of 144Mbps. However, with 5Ghz that limit is 300Mbps, which I thought it was great, but when I switched to 5Ghz I was only getting 54Mbps and weaker signal strength.
2.4 uses one channel, while 5 uses two channels. Could that be the problem? Again, I'm fine with the current 2.4, but I was just curious if there is a way to increase my speed. It's always nice to have faster internet
I was researching this myself just this morning. Here's the link I read a comparison on the 2, hope it provides a little helpful info for ya.

I thought that 5Ghz would always beat 2.4Ghz hands down on everything apart from distance. With this in mind I set my router to broadcast at 5Ghz and thought that my wifi would be much better as a result,but it wasn't.
I have my router and my PC in the same room a few meters from each other, and while I was using 2.4Ghz I would always get 90% signal strength,but when I changed to 5Ghz instead of my signal getting to 100% it went to 70%? My router is capable of both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz so why is it that 2.4Ghz is better than 5Ghz when I have been told that it should be the other way around?
I was told that microwaves, cordless telephones and other electronic devices use the 2.4Ghz frequency range and this causes intereference and as such causes a loss of signal.
5Ghz I was told is free of other electronic noise so it is much better and you will always get a stronger signal. The one thing which I was told that made 2.4Ghz better than 5Ghz was the fact that legal restrictions on 5Ghz routers meant that the amount of power they could use to output a signal meant they were not so good over long distances, and in some countries it was even illegal to use 5Ghz frequency.
The higher the frequency, the more power it takes to emit said frequency in comparison to lower frequencies. If you have a decent router, however, it shouldn't make a difference which band you transmit. Just because the router CAN use the 5GHz band doesn't mean it'll operate best on it.Read other 9 answers

I bought a D-link DIR 825 router, having read claims that, on ONE wireless network, it runs 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies SIMULTANEOUSLY, and somehow determines for itself how to apply those frequencies to what I'm trying to achieve on the network.
D-link's own support contact denies that this is possible, which appears to contradict D-link's claims about the DIR 825 and what I have read about the product online. They are saying that, indeed, you can use both frequencies at once, but on DIFFERENT machines, i.e. that a single machine cannot be simultaenously connected to both frequencies.
For the life of me, I can't see how to connect to both frequencies at the same time. When setting the DIR 825 up using the relevant wizards, it treats the 2.4GHz and 5GHz as two separate wireless networks. I can then connect each of my computers to one or the other, but apparently not both.
Any help would be enormously appreciated!
They imply two separate transceiver circuits insted of just one that switches transmitting frequency.
Traffic for the 5GHz will be faster with a separate SSID and transmitter., since you will cut out the delays caused by the transceiver switching frequency and handling the slower 2.4GHz traffic.
Your problem is that the computer's wireless adapter can only connect to one SSID and IP address.
You can set up alternate connections for your wireless adapter using a different SSID and IP address for the separate frequencies and switch back and forth, but this is not what you want.
To connect your computer the way you want you would need to have two wireless adapters on the computer.
Set one up using the 2.4GHz SSID and IP address as a default for general wirless use.
Setup the other one using the 5GHz SSID and IP address.
You would need to then set up routing on your computer so that programs that need to use the 5GHz will connect to it.

Hi: None of that information is available to the public (us).

Hello and Welcome to the sevenforums!
Have you investigated if the Toshiba wireless NIC has a 5GHz transceiver? If not, that is surely your issue. Cant see 5GHz if lappy isnt 2.4/5GHz dual NIC.
Hello Windows Gurus,
I'm starting to design a 5GHz Wireless Networks that will work together with an 2.4Ghz during the tests and transition phase. In order to keep the same configuration into the clients, we are choosing the same SSID, so we do not have to go one be one and change the machine configuration.
My question is, If there are two WLAN, one with 2.4Ghz and another with 5Ghz with the same SSID, how Windows will choose to which frequency to connect?! To the 2.4Ghz (the default frequency for most APs) or will it try to connect to the 5Ghz (Faster and Less Interference)?!
I also checked and the computers does have Wireless card that works with 5Ghz frequency.
Welcome to Seven Forums,
When you said two WLAN, are there 2 WAPs? One operates at 2.4GHz and another one at 5GHz? Perhaps, you're talking about a Dual Band Router that supports both Standards (11n and 11b/g)?
If your Wi-Fi adapters support both and they are configured with a mixed mode then they should be able to connect to the 5GHz band. The wireless mode can also be changed from your router and set it to just '5GHz' if you'd like all the wireless network devices to utilize the 5GHz.
FYI....802.11n supports both 2.4 and 5GHz clients but you must consider 5GHz than the 2.4GHz if you'd like to achieve a great network performance.
I have a new router Wi-Fi 600 Mbps on 2.4 GHz + 1300 Mbps on 5 GHz and wondering whether it is worth upgrading my laptop wifi card Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230
Any idea which internal card I could upgrade to?
I have looked at external USB cards but none of these seem to be significantly faster than the 300Mbps of the existing card. Or am I comparing apples with pears? And would an external card conflict with the current internal card wifi / bluetooth.
Does anyone have any experience of upgrading to 5Ghz on this laptop and whether it was worth the effort.
I am using the lastest Apple Airport Extreme Router which supports 2Ghz and 5Ghz bands. There are 3 iPhones, 4 iPads, and 2 Apple TV's in my home. All of which can access the 5GHz channel effortlessly. My PC on the other hand will ONLY see the 2Ghz band. I have tried everything that I can think of to no avail. I want my PC to connect to the 5Ghz band. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Maybe your computer wireless adapter is not dual-band? It is n not ac compatible.
Would help to know exactly what model it is.
I got a new d-link wireless N router the other day which solved most of my slow internet problems. It is a dual band router and supports 5ghz but my current network card is only 2.4ghz. I'm in an apartment complex so I figure if I run it on the 5ghz band I will get much less interference from other people's wifi. Only problem is I cant really find a dual band pci card??? The only one i've found is a Linksys WMP600N. I was hoping there were some more options out there. Anyone have any suggestions?
Linksys by Cisco Wireless-N PCI Adapter with Dual-Band WMP600N
Sorry, but like you this is the only one that I could find with a PCI interface. They are a reputable manufacturer though.
Hi, I've had the DIR-825 router for more than a year now and I've never once been able to see the second SSID that broadcasts at 5Ghz. I've set up both bands with identical settings and I have a wireless N network adapter in my laptop, but it only ever sees the 2 Ghz SSID, never the 5 Ghz one. Shouldn't I be able to see it?
Thanks for any help!
Only if the adapter is also a dual band..
Many adapters listed as Wireless "N" operate in only the 2.4 GHZ range (G). They use 3 channels to get 150 Mbps.
The D-LInk DWA-160 Extreme-N is dual band.
Also Netgear RangeMax WNDA 3100.
first off im not real saavy with computers... obviously right. i recently bought a dual band router. its a netgear nighthawk ac 1750. i have it hooked up, but my computer doesn't recognize the 5 ghz band or its just not on the list of available networks. when i go to the device manager under network adapters, it lists i have a qualcomm atheros ar9485 802.11 b/g/n wifi adapter. when i get into the settings of that i try and do an update and it comes back and says i have the latest update. dont have alot of money to buy a newly updated computer that would probably and certainly work well with the new dual band router. just wondering if there is any other options besides buying another computer? please help as i really don't know a heck of a lot about computers,however i am trying to learn.
Hi,Manual: Page 48http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03763129Specs: http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-2000-Notebook-PC-series/5375422/model/6617197/document/c04008973/There is no dual band wireless card listed compatible for your model series.Your model has BIOS white list, so you cannot definitely go for any other cards than what is listed (exact HP spare part number). Also there is only single antenna built in your notebook.What you can do is buy this:https://www.amazon.com/NETGEAR-N900-Wi-Fi-Adapter-WNDA4100/dp/B006V72AE0RegardsVisruthRead other 6 answers
Is there a dual band network card suitable for the Probook 450 G2?
Yes it is new enough not to have the whitelist so you can install any wireless card with the right form factor. Here is the Service Manual: Manual See p. 45. HP offered this one which is the top of the line: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi + Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 BT 4.0 combo adapter 756753-001 Available on Amazon.com: https://www.amazon.com/710661-001-Intel-Wireless-ac-7260-Pci-express/dp/B00PDLCFL8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1470826413&sr=8-1&keywords=756753-001 This is a drop-in plug and play replacement. You would want to get the driver files on the hard drive (like maybe the desktop) and have them available before you make the swap to be sure the card will work once you reboot Windows. Pick your OS from the drop-down menu here: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=6943827&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4059 You need the Intel wireless and Intel bluetooth drivers.

My school has now only got 5ghz wireless and now my laptop doesn't see the wireless network as a result. To fix this I need to upgrade my laptops wireless single band WirelessN card to a dual band AC card with bluetooth preferrably. I don't care if it is an original HP card so long as it fits properly and works. My laptop has an I7 quad core in it, 1 gig DDR5 graphics, 4gig RAM, 15.6" screen.Read other answers
Hi, What dual band wifi cards are approved for the S410p? I tested a random Intel card and got the following message: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted. Is the whitelist available online somewhere? I couldn't find it. Thanks, BM
Go to Solution.
Hello and welcome,
The best source I know is the parts list in the Hardware Maintenance Manual - IdeaPad S410p, S410p Touch, S510p, S510p Touch . WLAN cards are on page 80. I don't see any that are dual band from the description - but I haven't checked each one individually.
As you probably know, to pass the BIOS whitelist check a card must be an approved model and have a Lenovo FRU number (firmware modified for Lenovo).
I was wondering if it is possible to change my network or WiFi card to a card that supports dual band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands? And if so, what cards will work? Direct link will help. My card is a 1x1 wifi card.
Hi mate i would say go for intel 7260 dual band wireless lan card but do check if it's a full size card or micro but for to make it work you got open the laptop and install the card and install the drivers. If this helped you out please drop a kudos point thanks.
Hi, Is there a dual band wireless adapter I can put in my Pavilion dv6 (product # A3E86AAR#ABA)? The current adapter installed (Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11b|g|n WiFi Adapter) doesn't work very good and is not compatible with 5 GHz. If there is one available how do I make sure I buy the correct/compatible model/part number? Thanks,BradRead other answers
I have a dual band wireless router with 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz using the N standard. I am purchasing a laptop soon. What kind of wireless card will I need to access the the 5.0ghz frequencies? Do I need to have a dual band wireless card or will just a N standard wireless card suffice to see the 5.0 ghz? My work laptop with a "G" wireless card recognizes the 2.4ghz band only, which makes sense.
