lenovo L520 / Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 wireless card not picking up 5ghz - can anyone help?

Hi everyone


i bought this lenovo laptop partly because i could add the more expensive Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 which supports 2.4ghz and 5ghz wireless networks


i have many wireless networks in work which have 2.4ghz and 5.8ghz networks and i can only see the 2.4ghz networks


i have spoke to intel and lenovo and i have not had a resolve yet


original intel topic here



i will give a brief


i have updated the drivers to the latest intel drivers 15.1

i have checked the bios version and i am usin 1.15 (new one released 1.16 i have not tried yet)


lenovo said i need to update drivers, i have

lenovo said i need to update bios - i have not because i personally feel this will make no difference besides i am away and do not have a cd to burn the bios too


lenovo said if i have done the above and it stil does not work then it is a limiation of the motherboard.


i said if that is the case, where does this leave me as at no point was this mentioned that a key feature to a product i bought was disabled


anyone else out there have this issue?
