I bought my daughter a Dell laptop a few years ago... 2017'ish or so. She brought it home last week for me to update and I realized it wouldn't connect to our 5G WiFi... I had to turn the radio on for the 2.4G, and then it picked up the 2.4G signal, and was able to connect. It has a Qualcomm QCA9565 wireless adapter, it says it has the latest driver... but I'm not real savvy on network adapters and getting them to cooperate. Is this thing stuck with 2.4G WiFi, or is there a way to update the adapter, or... I guess... replace it to pick up 5G?
