Default Can't connect to 5Ghz WiFi on Galaxy S4 I9505

I have a i9505 S4, it does not seem to be able to find the 5gHz network whereas on the iPhone 5, i am able to connect to the 5gHz network. Both 2.4 and 5 gHz network have different SSID names.

Change to different channel in 5ghz and try, 36 or 44 channel.

Me too, I9500 no issue with this, but I9505 can't search for 5 Ghz wireless network, chg router channel still the same. I 'm using Netgear R6300.

Default Same issue here

I had i9190 and it was working great. Now I have tried two i9195 and one i9192. Both i9195 only work on 2.4Ghz and do not show 5Ghz bands at all. I9192 could not connect to any network, DOA. All phones had 4.2.2 update so it was not software issue. I guess samsung started to block 5 Ghz band on i9195.
