    Windows 8.1 cant connect to 5ghz connections..


    Hello
    I have a Linksis Dual-Band wireless-N USB network dongle for my desktop (model: WUSB600N). For some reason I stopped seeing 5ghz connections even if I used to see them before. I installed the drivers several more times but still nothing.. I was wondering if anyone had a solution to this annoying problem. Thanks

    Did you go into properties to see if 2.4 ghz & 5 ghz are set to auto? Also are you using 40 mhz Channel Bandwidth with two channels manually set to say 1 & 5 on the router/access point? Also is the router/Access Point that you have still set for 5 ghz?
