Hi guys, I own a ZenPhone 5 ze620kl and I always used it with my 5ghz wifi on my ISP provided router (a tecnicolor) something.

Problem is I now have a more powerfull router to manage my Internet that suports dual band wifi, but my phone doesn't recognize the 5ghz Wi-Fi, only the 2.4 one. All the other devices that support dual band wifi in my home detect it, but this phone does not.

Why is that with the other router I didn't have any problems and now I have?

According to GSM arena my phone has Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, isnt that supposed to mean that it supports 5ghz wifi?

    4. If you put your phone and other devices in the same room of the router, can other device detect 5 ghz wifi yet can't your device?
