I just got the Gen5 and the 5Ghz does not even show up as an option for the wifi. Talked to someone at Hughes and they claimed all was well on their end and that my laptop is "probably" to old to support this new dual band modem. Does this sound right? I'm using an Asus that is a couple years old. When I check the wifi on the laptop, it's using the 2.4Ghz hug2 wifi. I have not seen 5Ghz at any time as an option, or that it is even there. Now, I am an admitted luddite, no solution is obvious or easy. I read where rebooting the modem may solve the problem...how do u do that, just power it down and then turn it back on? Anyway, whomever I talked to at hughes is convinced that I need a new laptop that can operate with the dual band modem. Any help would be appreciated.
