    I have a router that broadcasts in 2.4 and 5G (both have separate ssid). both are detected by my windows 10 and windows 7 laptops. however, my dad's laptop (also windows 7) can only detect the ssid of the 2.4 one. why is this?

    It’s possible the WiFi card of that laptop only supports 2.4 GHz networks. It might be a WiFi-g or WiFi-n 1x1 network card.
