Using Netgear Genie with my Netgear R8000 Nighthawk. On my HP laptop it all works GREAT but on my new desktop and new install of Netgear Genie, it only shows my 2.4GHz connections. NONE of my 5GHz connections show. All else seems to be working good except for this piece. Is there something I am missing that I need to do to get it to show these connections?
Re: 5GHz connections
Please do check if your new desktop wireless is compatible for the 5GHz band. You can check if your PC is compatible or not. Follow these steps-
On your PC, open Command Prompt.
Type netsh wlan show drivers in CMD and hit enter.
Check the radio type supported.
NOTE-Please refer to the below-given table to know more about Radio Types
|802.11n||2.4Ghz and 5Ghz|
If it is not supported, Get a USB wireless adapter for your PC. Amazon
