I can't connect to my 5ghz network. It worked before but stopped working recently. The 2.4 Ghz works fine. The 5ghz works fine on other computers and phones. I can't find a solution to my problem. What happens: Trying to connect -> Pops up that it is secured -> Windows 10 sidebar (network) does random things -> Can't connect to this network.
What I've tried: Uninstalling driver, restarting the router, re-installing fresh driver, cmd (netsch, flush and so on).

Specs: Asus AC66U and Asus PCE-AC68

Manually set the channel width to 40Mhz and to a low channel number on the router. If your router is set to "Auto" for channel number there could be a mismatch on the allowable channels based on localization. Channel 38 or 46 are available in all areas. Try that.

Thanks for the help. Changing it to 40Mhz and channel 48 worked. The other channels didn't work.
