I think you should learn what wireless cards are first.

 

Maybe then you would know that 5G does not exist.

 

5 GHz wifi, however, does.

Well yeah, that's is what i meant :/

 

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

If you dont want to modifiy your bios (thats what you need todo if you want to use any other wifi card then the whitelisted ones from lenovo) you need to use one of theese models (whitelisted from lenovo):

Intel cards are good for software updates as far as others Broadcom work well but my best experience has been with Atheros. I am about to update the card in my Y500 after i mod my bios

i guess you should flash your Y500 bios , then you can  replace another wireless card

So should we re-visit this question?  Are there any *actual* 5G cards that'll work with an unlocked BIOS (because that would be awesome) :)
