Can't find 5 ghz network?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just set up an ASUS n51 router and even bought a dual band wifi n usb to go with it as my laptop doesnt have /n built in. For some reason I can't find the 5ghz network when I try to connect. Any ideas?

I've made sure the channel is right, the router is set to n only, etc. I only see the 2.4 ghz one.

Did you name the 2.4 and 5ghz networks different names? If not, you're going to have to and you won't be able to see it if the device/network adapter doesn't support 5ghz. 5ghz doesn't have the greatest range, just FYI in case you're not very close to the router while testing.

I'm in between a wall, but my roommate is further and he is able to see it. They are different names and have different passwords, each. My device does support 5 GHz.

Check your device is set to search for 5Ghz.

yup, it has it enabled as well.

I tried setting the 2.4 ghz to 20 mhz width and the 5 ghz to 40 mhz, still nothing.
