Dell WLAN Mini Card and 5.0Gig

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?

John P.,

 

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.

Re: Dell WLAN Mini Card and 5.0Gig

John P.,

 

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

Re: Dell WLAN Mini Card and 5.0Gig

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.
