    5 gHz Wifi

    I installed a new Cable Modem Router that has dual band, 2.4 gHz and 5 gHz wifi. Everything works fine on my cell phones but when I connect to the new wifi, my computer does not see the 5 gHz wifi. I am using Windows 10 on a HP Pavilion g6. The computer
    is more than 5 years old. Is there a way to get the computer to recognize the 5 gHz wifi, which is more reliable than the 2.4 gHz?

    Lenovo X1 very slow on 5 GHz wifi, normal on 2.5 GHz

    Windows Pro 1909. I have a 7 Mbps internet connection to my local ISP. Not great, but pretty good in my rural area. No problem streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime on my TV or old laptop.

    I just discovered that my new X1 7th Gen (purchased 9/2019) is running at 1/5 speed wifi on the 5 GHz band compared to the 2.5 GHz band. I couldn't get Zoom video to work, which is how I discovered the problem.

    When I put my iPhone SE or a 5 year old Panasonic Toughbook laptop alongside my X1, they both get full speed on both wifi bands. Tested using Ookla on all three devices. So it is not my router.

    I keep up with all the system upgrades that Lenovo offers.

    Lenovo hardware diagnostics show no problem with my wifi, but those tests are just pass/fail. I can't find any other tests or settings that could apply. Tried posting on the Lenovo community forums but no reply as yet.

    Here is the info on my wireless:


    • Intel(R) Wireless-AC 9560 160MHz - Success
    • Device Information:
      • Display Name:Intel(R) Wireless-AC 9560 160MHz
      • Udi:IntelCorporation-Intel(R)Wireless-AC9560160MHz-DC:71:96:B8:7A:B8
      • Driver Version:21.50.1.1
