Your desktop computer may not have the ability to detect that channel.  If it did, you would see it.  There are gizmos you can get to address this, though.  They're cheap at Amazon.

Keep in mind that HughesNet's Gen5 doesn't exceed the speed capabilities of 2.4GHz WiFi, meaning that unless there is some type of signal interference with the 2.4GHz band, it's not very likely that using the 5GHz band would show any speed improvement.  However, if a LAN cable connected device does show better speed than 2.4GHz WiFi, it's possible that a 5GHz WiFi connected device will as well.
