Basically, the WiFi cards for the Costco & HP web pages, do NOT list
the frequency. I won't recommend a laptop that does not have *both*
2.4GHz and 5GHz.
I just want to know how I can be sure of that, when they don't bother
to list the frequencies in the WiFi specs!
Here is the HP spec for that laptop:
I can't tell which WiFi card has *both* 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
The option Intel -AC card with Bluetooth is what you want then.
This one is dual band(2.4GHz, 5GHz) This is AMD cpu based laptop.
A10 is the top end one. Video card... Rxxxx. xxxx at higher number is
better one. Any more questions? Don't forget to read reviews on this
model to see whether buyers are happy or not.
FWIW, this Lenovo ThinkPad W550s has two cards listed as options:
-- Intel 7265 BGN + Bluetooth Version 4.0"
-- Intel 7265 AC/B/G/N Dual Band Wireless + Bluetooth Version 4.0"
Since this thread is really about INTERPRETING specs, is this
1. Intel 7265 BGN + Bluetooth Version 4.0
Would it be safe to assume this has *only* 2.4GHz?
2. Intel 7265 AC/B/G/N Dual Band Wireless + Bluetooth Version 4.0
Is it safe to assume this has *both* 2.4GHz & 5GHz?

After my conversation with HP today, I found out that their "ac" card has
both 2.4GHz and 5GHz because it is backward compatible, but they said
that backwards-compatible-ac-card is *not* a "dual band" card.
Apparently they defined "dual band" in a specific way, that excludes the
fact that it has "two" bands.
