How do I set the "Microsoft hosted network virtual adapter" to 5ghrz? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Wireless card supports 2.4 and 5ghrz AC but setting up the Microsoft hosted network virtual adapter seems to only run in 2.4ghrz mode. Is there any way to get it to run in 5ghrz?

    I just use these commands in cmd...

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=NAME key=PASSWORD

    netsh wlan start hostednetwork

  • Hi,

    You can try to check Wireless driver properties settings for test.

    Open Device Manager, switch to Wireless driver, click properties, choose Advanced.

    Select the Wireless setting; mine was set to 802.11b/g; change it to 802.11a/b/g
