Does linux supports wifi standards beyond 802.11g
I have an old laptop with a dual band of 2.4ghz and 5ghz that supports wifi standards 802.11a/b/g/n
I'm not sure if it's distro specific issue or the driver I used, but Mint 17 doesn't see my SSID channel which is the 5ghz band which uses the 802.11n standard.
Mint 17 only sees my 2.4ghz SSID channel plus other SSID around the area.
I've used the bcmwl-kernel-source driver which is a broadcomm Linux STA wireless driver.
So, that I don't beat my head around this, is there truth to my statement or is there a linux distro that supports wifi standards like 802.11/n/ac/ad etc...
