The card only supports 2.4GHz.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

unless you are in the same room as the router, that is no great loss.

my Recliner is in an adjacent room, about 25 feet from the WiFi router dual band.

the laptop sees about a 60% signal on 5g, but the 2.4g signal is almost 85%
when people walk around the room between me and the router, the 5g signal drops completely out.

I use the 2.4g signal most of the time unless everyone has gone to bed.
