5ghz WiFi band
I have a NetGear 750 Router with 2 bands, 2.4ghz and 5ghz. My NS4G picks up the 2.4 but not the 5, even when I put it in manually.
Does the NS4G just not pick up this wifi band?
(Am I using band correctly? not sure if I am, /noob)
My room mates iPhone's (3g and 4) pick up both and so does my wifi Xoom and GTV
Btw, I am the only one with access to the 5ghz since it is my router and I bought it, the only thing on the network is my Xoom, Macbook Pro, Google TV and 360.
Thanks for any help.

Re: 5ghz WiFi band
No it can't...
5 Ghz from my research is only available to devices using a 802.11a WIFI radio/chip.. However you want to say it...
The NS4G only supports 802.11b/g/n which is 2.4 Ghz and under...

802.11n standard uses either 2.4 or 5 Ghz. 802.11a only uses 5Ghz. Some wireless N devices support 5 and some only support 2.4.
It's just another detail you have to look for when buying an N capable device (wireless router included).
