I have a BTHub5 and am having problems getting my Windows 10 PC to detect the 5GHz channel which I can easily detect with a Kindle Fire HD!! I have followed the installation and change instructions for the hub to the letter but cannot get the PC to add the 5GHz channle to the list of available wifi connections. I can detect the 2.4GHz channel and a Wifi extender in my garage but not the flaming 5GHz channel.
I have added the renamed BTHub5-NNNN_5GHz to the Network list of settings and still can't get it to show up and connect to.
Any ideas please? I am clearly missing something obvious which is driving me crazy!

Silly question, does you PC wifi adapter have 5Ghz wireless capability?
I have a Ralink 802.11n USB Wireless LAN Card that supportst 802.11n / 802.11g / 802.11b which I undestand does not support 5GHz connectivity - Unless I'm wrong about that?
I only discovered this in the last hour after some excessive Googling!
Looks like a new adaptor card needed or just the TP-Link USB adaptor?
Thanks for the nudge.
@Richard500 for your PC to see and connect to the 5ghz signal you'll need a 802.11ac compatible wireless card/adapter.
