Am looking for an HDMI stick who is working on the 5 GHz WLAN network. Unfortunately when I looked in the specification sheet of some HDMI sticks I could not find out whether the stick supports WLAN 5 GHz or not.

For example the asus vivostick, on their specification sheet they only write that the stick supports WLAN b/g/n/ac, but they did not write if the sticks supports WLAN 5 GHz: https://www.asus.com/us/Stick-PCs/VivoStick-PC-TS10/specifications/

Or the Intel Compute Stick, on the producers website, they only write, that stick provides WLAN b/g/n, but they did not mention if the sticks supports WLAN 5 GHz: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/compute-stick/compute-stick-product-brief.html

So, could anybody recommend me a HDMI stick with WLAN 5 GHz?

If I understand the 802.11 specs correctly, then the 802.11ac variant uses the 5GHz band exclusively, thus the ASUS device should be what you are looking for.

Take a look at the table on Wikipedia. IEEE 802.11 protocols
