2.4HGz and 5GHz

On my Iphone and Ipad I have the choice of selecting 2.4 GHz and 5GHz, yet on my laptop (Windows) the connections only show 2.4GHz. How can I select 5.GHZ?

Sounds like your PC has an older WIFI card in it that doesn't support 5Ghz connections like 802.11B/G.

FWIW, if any given device doesn't support the 5 GHz band, it (the SSID broadcast) won't even show up in the devices WiFi connection dialog.
