EX6150 - 5GEX option not showing up on list of available networks on 1 of my laptops

I have a Netgear AC1200/R6220 router and a Netgear AC1200/EX6150 Wi-Fi Extender. I also have 2 laptops running Windows 10.

 

When I go into Settings > Network and Internet > Wi-Fi, and click on "Show available networks", only one of the laptops shows both the 5GEXT and the 2GEXT network connections. The other laptop only shows the 2GEXT network option. I want to have both laptops have the 5GEXT option. What do I need to do the make the 5GEXT show on the 2nd laptop?

 

Many Thanks,

Jonathan

what wifi card is in the laptop that doesn't display the 5gh?

maybe that laptop is only a single band laptop.
