The device can't do 5GHz, it doesn't have a 5GHz radio.

It does, just not enabled by the firmware, nor allowing users to choose 5GHz; and it only has single band, not dual band, so it can only run either 2.4GHz or 5GHz.

It may have a chipset that can do it, but if they have not designed the antenna network and an appropriate antenna for it, then it could just be transmitting out of a piece of trace on the circuit board and nothing else.

Yeah, that makes sense, and this could explain why running at 5GHz the performance was so poor.
