    Can my Toshiba Model Satellite Pro C870-1E2 laptop work on the 5Ghz band with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.Tried posing this question to Toshiba but there appears to be a technical hitch there so unable to forward my question to them.

    Hi

    The Wlan frequency depends on the WLan card.
    I think the notebook was equipped with the Realtek RTL8723AE WLan card which supports the 802.11 B / G / N standard

    5Ghz is available only using 802.11 A or N

    802.11 N standard operates at 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz but 5Ghz would be available ONLY if the WLan card would support additional 802.11 A standard; i.e 802.11 A / N.

    But Realtek RTL8723AE doesn’t support 802.11 A and therefore the 5Ghz are not possible for this WLan module.

    Here is an similar thread about the same theme:
