Not-so-recently, I bought a dual-band router, almost entirely for that sweet, sweet 5GHz wifi band that my newly built computer could rest on.
I don't remember the exact date I did that, but it was many months ago now. Up until last Friday I was using the 5GHz band, and everything was going a-okay. But then since last Friday, my beloved 5GHz isn't working properly.
ROUTER: Belkin N600 Wireless N+ Router / Model: F9K1102V2
WIRELESS ADAPTER: (tbh theres a lot of writing on here and i dont see exactly where the product name and everything is but here goes) ASUS Dual-Band Wireless USB Adapter / Model: USB-N53
What EXACTLY happens, is: My computer sees the 5GHz band. I'm currently connected to the 2.4GHz band. I click on "blahblah.media", and I click Connect. It then says "Checking Network Requirements..." and after maybe 10-ish seconds, the text disappears and the Cancel button greys out, but I'm still unconnected (the loading dots keep moving). Normally I let it go until it says "Can't Connect To This Network", but when I was timing it and testing it just now, it didn't stop for a good 2 minutes and 44 seconds which is WAY longer than it normally takes. It probably averages like 40 seconds.
If you need any more information, I'm happy to provide.
