  1. The most helpful information I have found yet. Thanks. Better than the employee at a big box electronics store who sold me a laptop saying it was 5g capable and was not. Thank you!

  2. Good presentation and even a layman can check and know whether the laptop supports 5G or not. Continue your good work to educate people. 🙂

  3. Hi. My laptop listed all 5 (not just the 3 for 5Ghz) so does that mean i still have 5Ghz capability or not?
    Mine reads:
    Radio types supported: 802.11b 801.11g 802.11n 802.11a 802.11ac
    so since there are 5 instead of the 3 listed, will it have the 5Ghz capability?
    Thanks.

  4. Thank you so much!!! This info saved me a lot of time. If it’s not compatible is there a way to make it compatible? Like with a USB etc?

  5. Is there a way to fix my 5g wifi compatibility issue with windows 10? My laptop is 2.4
    g compatible only. Thanks ahead.

  6. Great way to find out if your networkcard supports 5 ghz or not.
    But it wont offer a sollution when it is compatible and not showing.
    So it only helps to find out if it should work…..no sollutions to any problem regarding the issues. So other then support check useless post.
    Didnt fix nothing didnt provide any answer that i didnt already know.

  7. Is there a way to fix my 5g wifi compatibility issue with windows 10? My laptop is 2g compatible only. Thanks ahead.
