creating ad-hoc network in 5GHz range


I am exprerimentin with two intel n 5300 cards. I want to create ad-hoc network in 5Ghz band, but when i cannot. I have tried, network-manager, iwconfig and iw commands but in vain. Card is using intel iwlwifi drivers.

1) Network-manager is never able to connect to 5GHz band
2) iwconfig does put card to ad-hoc mode, but does not associate with any cell number.
3) iw join ibss is able to put card in adhoc mode and also associate cell number, but running same set of commands on two laptops put them in different cell number hence i am not able to ping from one to another.

Have anybody created ad-hoc mode in 5ghz range successfully.
if so how? or any pointers how i can narrow down this issue?

after this i intend to put card in 802.11n mode, but that also does not seem to be working.

Thanks in advance.
