SL510 can't connect to 5GHz N network

I have Thinkpad SL510 laptop and DD-WRT flashed Netgear WNDR3300 router. The laptop can connect to the N-network when it is running at 2.4GHz but when I switch to 5GHz N-network, the laptop does not see it. Is it because SL510 does not support 5GHz or I have a problem with my configuration? Laptop is running 64-bit Win7 with all the updates installed. I am using the Lenovo wireless tools to connect to find and connect to the wireless networks.

 

Thanks.
