I tried setting my router to only use 5Ghz. My work ProBook 6550b (at least a year old) didnt blink an eyelid.

My private Toshiba S70T-A016, less thtn a month old can no longer see the SSID.

Is there any way to encourage it to talk on 5GHz WiFi?

Thanks in advance

The 5GHz depends on the WLan card which is built in the notebook.
The Wlan standard 802.11 B and G supports 2.4Ghz
The Wlan standard 802.11 A supports 5Ghz
The WLan standard 802.11 N supports 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz

But if the Wlan card would not support 802.11 A then 802.11 N standard would run only at 2.4Ghz
