ASUS notebook doesn't see 5G

My kid just bought this ASUS G75 Series G75VW-NS71 Notebook. I assumed it would detect my Netgear N900's 5G band, but it does not. Another laptop sees it with no problem. What am I missing?

Windows 7 Home Premium, up to date.

Re: ASUS notebook doesn't see 5G

From that link;

“802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN”

A 5GHz capable adaptor would normally be listed as;

“802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN”

Note that 802.11n can operate on either the 2.4GHz or 5GHz band and that many 802.11n capable adaptors only operate on the 2.4GHz band, the typically more expensive 2.4/5GHz adaptors are described as 'Dual Band'.

ASUS notebook doesn't see 5G band

This notebook has an Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter supporting 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN.

The driver is version 9.2.0.469 dated 11/22/2011. I believe there is a newer version available, but I've yet to find a legitimate download source.

Weird. I don't remember making that first post. But thanks for the answers.
