How can see & use 5GHz wifi networks on my galaxy tab E (bought recently in belgium)

Currently I can only see 2.5GHz networks. The specification says wifi 'n', so I should be able to see my drone which is on a 5GHz channel.

Thanks!

Re: How can see & use 5GHz wifi networks on my galaxy tab E (bought recently in belgium)

Welcome to Android Central! The ability of the device to detect the 5 GHz band is separate from the wireless 802.11 protocols it can use. The Tab E can only use the 2.4 GHz band, as described in this review: Samsung Galaxy Tab E (9.6-inch, WiFi) T560N Tablet Review - NotebookCheck.net Reviews

It's the same thing with my Honor 5X. It's compatible with 802.11n, but can only access the 2.4 GHz band.
