Connecting to 5G on my laptop...

My laptop can only detect the 2G network that my superhub 2 is emitting.  The hub is definitely set up for both as my Note 2 phone detects and connects to both 2G and 5G.  My laptop however only detects 2G.

 

It's a relatively new laptop with an Intel N135 wireless card which, from what I can tell, can detect 2G and 5G.  And I have the latest driver installed.

 

So what do I need to do to get my laptop to recognise the 5G network??

 

Thanks,

 

Rob

You'll need to buy a dual band usb adaptor
