I have a Dual Band router at home with 2.4ghz & 5ghz frequency. I really wanted to try connecting to the 5ghz frequency rate just for the kick of it but sadly my laptop can only connect to 2.4ghz connections. I did some research and I found out that you could connect to 5ghz connections using a wifi adapter. I found a dual band wifi adapter but my problem is that it says 2.4ghz & 5.8ghz networks. So my question is if I can use the wifi adapter to connect to my router's 5ghz network?

Black Ace:
when they say 5ghz "band", they mean the all the frequencies in that band… 5ghz band for wifi goes from 5…170ghz to 5…835ghz (actual frequencies)… however, some countries have different channels/frequencies, so check that your adapter is specifically made for your country…

for example, japan, china and israel have some restrictions on what channels can be used for 5ghz wifi

Yes, when asking an equipment or device question — it works best if you tell us the make & model of the device. And while I'm thinking about it… tell us which country you're in, too.
