The Dell Vostro 1510 laptop does not have a built-in 5GHz Wi-Fi adapter, so you would need to upgrade the adapter to one that supports 5GHz. Here are the steps you can follow to do that:

  1. Check your current Wi-Fi adapter: You can check the model of your current Wi-Fi adapter by going to the Device Manager in Windows. To do that, right-click on the Start button, click on Device Manager, and then expand the Network adapters category.

  2. Purchase a new Wi-Fi adapter: Look for a Wi-Fi adapter that supports 5GHz. You can find one from Dell or other third-party vendors. Make sure the new adapter is compatible with your laptop.

  3. Install the new Wi-Fi adapter: Turn off your laptop, unplug it, and remove the battery. Then, locate the Wi-Fi adapter in your laptop, and remove it. Insert the new adapter and secure it in place. Reattach the battery, plug in your laptop, and turn it on.

  4. Install the drivers: Once your laptop has booted up, install the drivers for the new Wi-Fi adapter. You should be able to find the drivers on the manufacturer's website or on the CD that came with the adapter.

  5. Connect to the 5GHz network: Once the drivers are installed, you should be able to connect to 5GHz networks just like you would with any other Wi-Fi network.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
