  1. Unable to connect to 5ghz wifi


    I have a Dell Vostro 3580 laptop with Qualcomm QCA9377 802.11ac wireless adapter. I was able to connect to my phone's 5ghz wifi hotspot for many months, but today, when I tried to connect, it said Cant connect to this network, and after that it doesn't even show my wifi in available networks. When i switch my mobile hotspot to 2.4ghz, it is able to connect, so the problem is with 5ghz only. I tried my sister's 5ghz wifi and it connects without any problem. Also, I am able to connect to my 5ghz mobile hotspot from a different pc, but NOT MY PC.


    I have tried a bunch of different solutions like:-

    1. trying to update my wifi drivers, but it says the latest drivers r already installed

    2. uninstalling my driver and restarting the laptop

    3. doing a network reset


    but, NONE OF THESE WORKED FOR ME


    Please help me out, Thanks.

    :)

    5GHz Wifi

    Hello. I want to connect to 5GHz wifi, but its not showing up in the connection list. I've done a bit of research and my laptop should be able to connect to the 5GHz band.

    5ghz wifi not showing windows 10

    I just got a new modem/router and it has a 2.4ghz and 5ghz wifi connections...Only the 2.4ghz shows in the wifi list while the 5ghz isn't showing at all. My computer's network card does support the 5ghz and I know the 5ghz is working because I can connect to it from other devices...just not my desktop computer.

    EDIT: I've attempted updating network driver, also resetting network in the settings menu. Both hasn't worked.

    Can't connect to 5Ghz WiFi on Windows

    Hi Phelenor, my name is Felipe Lucas, windows expert and user like you.

    I'll be happy to help you.

    5GHz WiFi not showing up in your Windows 10 computer is a very common issue. There are literally thousands of queries out there asking why is 5G Wifi not showing up, how to enable 5G WiFi, why they can’t connect to 5G WiFi, and more. These issues usually come
    up when users change their WiFi Router, update their OS, change hardware components of PC related to WiFi, update device driver, etc. The most common of them all is when users get a new router. When the router is set up, instead of their PC’s WiFi Adapter
    detecting both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bandwidth signals, it only detects 2.4GHz bandwidth signal.

    Please, try to follow the steps listed on the link below:

    I hope this helps. Feel free to ask back any questions and let us know how it goes. I will keep working with you until it's resolved.
