Loaded a wifi analyzer app on my sons laptop. it will not see the 5ghz network from the we1326. It does see the 2.4ghz.
Interesting enough my phone wifi analyzer does see the 5ghz network but cannot connect up. It is like the phone just see the beacon frame. The 5ghz signal is strong and the correct channel (36 for default) and bandwidth. Something really wacky, it there some setting I am missing?
Does the laptop support 5.8GHz? I have one that doesn't.

As long as you aren't changing any channels or any settings when you flash the firmware, then you would be set up the same way as me, other than splitting the SSIDs into 2.4 and 5.8. If you are setting custom channels and other settings, then it would be an apples to oranges comparison.

I assume you have tried forgetting the WiFi network on your phone, and then reestablishing a new connection (requiring a new password)?

Is the WiFi on your Son's laptop compatible 5GHz AC WiFi.

Yes, quite a few times now.

Yes, it is currently connected up to my home 5G network on channel 149.
