Hi,

I have just received a new router with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

I use a wicd to connect my Gentoo by wifi with router, and I can only see 2.4Ghz.

What should I do to see it, if possible?

I use:
Code:
05:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 (rev 34)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 BGN
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 55
        Memory at f7900000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]
        Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 3
        Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
        Capabilities: [e0] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
        Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
        Capabilities: [140] Device Serial Number dc-a9-71-ff-ff-9c-ff-ae
        Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
        Kernel modules: iwlwifi

What makes you think your wireless card can work in 5 GHz band? BTW, it is GHz, not Ghz (unless you feel the need to display disrespect towards Heinrich Rudolf Hertz). The unit is Hz, all units named after founder start uppercase.
