How to set up a 5g network adapter for your laptop

Many newer laptops come with an integrated 4g network adapter, but this is not always the case. You’ll also find that in some places, the internet speed available to you through 4g isn’t fast enough to be worth using. When you need faster internet, or when you want to save on data costs by connecting your laptop directly to the internet, it’s time to set up a 5g network adapter for your laptop. Read on for more information about how to set up your own 5g network adapter and enjoy high-speed internet wherever you go!

 

Step 1: What you will need

1. A 5g router with external antennas
2. A 5g adapter
3. Ethernet cable
4. Laptop, tablet, or phone with internet access
5. The newest version of Windows 10 (Windows 7 and 8 will not work)
6. The latest drivers from Microsoft’s website for the 5g adapter and the Wi-Fi card in your computer (check Windows Update first)
7. Power cord for the router 8. Antennas on the 5g router should be as high as possible while still near an outlet
9. Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the back of your 5g router
10. Plug another end into any available Ethernet port on your laptop, tablet, or phone
11. Turn on the power to your 5g router and wait a few minutes until it is fully booted up

2. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the port labeled Internet on the 5G adaptor and plug it into an available port on your router.
3. Connect one end of an Ethernet cable to the port labeled Laptop on the 5G adaptor, and plug it into a USB or PC port in your computer.
4. Turn on your 5G adaptor by pressing its power button (located on top), then turn on your computer and wait until both devices fully boot up. 5. Select Wireless from your menu bar at the top of your screen and select the 5G network that appears in the list of available networks, enter your password if prompted to do so. Congratulations! You are now connected wirelessly with speeds that are five times faster than what you were previously experiencing!

2. Connect the 5g adapter to your laptop using an ethernet cable (or wireless if you have one).

4. Search for networks on your computer and connect them to the Wi-Fi that matches the name of the 5g antennae you are using.
5. Type in any security codes that might be needed depending on what type of router you are connected to (if any). 6. Type in the password or login information into the browser when it asks you for this information after connecting with Wi-Fi (if necessary). You should now see that you are connected to the internet!

 

Step 4: Fix if it doesn’t connect automatically

After installing the 5g network adapter, you should be able to see it in the device manager. If not, go back and make sure all of the steps above were followed correctly. If it still doesn’t show up in the device manager, there are two possible reasons:
The 5g network adapter may not be compatible with your current wireless card.
The driver may not have been installed properly. To fix this, open Device Manager from Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager (or from Start Menu > Right-click on Computer > Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager). Under Network Adapters, right-click on the 5g adapter and select Update Driver Software. Select Search automatically for the updated driver software or click Browse my computer for driver software to find 5G drivers manually. If you don’t want to install automatic updates, I recommend downloading them before updating just in case something goes wrong during the installation or something has changed since that last update.

 

Step 5: Enable the hotspot

You should now see the Wi-Fi hotspot you created, called 5G Hotspot. This is the name of the Wi-Fi hotspot that will show up on all of your devices. To connect to it, just select it from the list and enter any password you want.
You can also change this by clicking on Settings in the top menu bar and selecting Wi-Fi Settings. Once you’re there, click Manage Network Connections at the bottom left of the page. Click on 5G Hotspot, then click on Properties, then change whatever settings you’d like–you could even give this connection a different name! Click Save when you’re done.

 

Final tips & tricks

-Find out the frequency of your wireless carrier and the frequency of the 5g router before purchasing an antenna.
-Buy and install an external antenna if you don’t have a home internet connection with access to 5g service.
-Buy and install an internal antenna if you have access to 5g service but no external antennas.
-Do not confuse 5G with 4G LTE; they are different technologies! 5g is about speed, whereas 4G LTE is about coverage.

 

Conclusion;

Setting up and using a 5g network adapter is not difficult. To start, you need to find the right adapter for your laptop. You can do this by using the information on the back of your machine or in its manual. Once you have found the right one, all you need to do is plug it into an open USB port and follow the instructions on the screen. If you are uncertain about what step comes next, don’t be afraid to ask someone who has experience with this type of technology or call customer support at the company that makes it.
