I recently purchased an Asus RT-N66U which I'm very excited about. I also picked up a Netgear A6200 USB WiFi adapter. It's 802.11ac Dual Band compatible (says so on the box). When I set up the router, I can only see the 2.4GHz network on my main PC, and not my brand new and shiny 5GHz one. I'm able to see and connect to the 5GHz network on both my phone and a 5GHz compatible laptop I have, but cannot on the PC I purchased a new wireless adapter for.
I went into command prompt to ensure my computer was capable of picking up the 802.11a and 802.11n network modes (by typing in “netsh wlan show drivers”) and both show up. I've also checked InSSIDer to see if any networks on the 5GHz range are visible, and they are not. It appears as though the adapter simply isn't trying to look for that channel.
I'm at a loss for right now. Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything would be much appreciated.
