Dell WLAN Mini Card and 5.0Gig

This question is not answered

My Dell workstation will only see my Dual Band Router at 2.4gig and will not see the 5.0gig.  Is this card capable of seeing above 2.4?

    If you provide the information requested, I can tell you.

    Can you run Finding System Information REMOVE YOUR PRODUCT ID and REGISTERED OWNER, if using XP, run an ipconfig /all log and post it back here.

  • John P.,

     

    The DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card adapter works on 2.4GHz ONLY. It will not see 5.0GHz

  • Thanks Rick.....at now I won't be racking my brian (and changing things on this PC) trying to find out what the problem is!!  You've saved me hours of frustration!

  • John P.,

     

    Glad I could be of help. Sorry it's not what you wanted to hear. This adapter uses dual streaming on 2.4GHz which gives it the qualifying wireless N speeds.
