hi therealabdo,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

From this wikidevi page, the Realtek RTL8723BE is a b/g/n 1x1:1 (one transmit and receive radio chains).

 

If the Wireless Mode under WiFi properties is set to Auto, this means that card will use the fastest connection possible first, which is 802.11n.

    - Sample image

 

In addition, a b/g/n wireless card will not be able to detect a 5Ghz wireless access point as these type of cards can only detect and connect to a 2.4Ghz band.

 

More info:

Wireless: Determine if Computer Has 5GHz Network Band Capability (Windows)

Laptop wireless networking options: 1x1 vs 2x2

 

 

Regards

While i can not see 5 GHz networks i did significantly improve the performance of the 2.4 band by changing a setting on the adapter.

Advanced, WiFi Config field. Change default of Performance to Wi-Fi. My download went from 6.x to 36.x.

 

Sure wish i could get the Realtek to see 5 GHz.
