    Ok I just bought a dual band router than does both 2.4 and 5 Ghz at the same time.

    Evo4G can connect to 2.4 but not the 5 Ghz.
    Anyone else having this problem.

    How will I know if my future smart phone can the 5Ghz?

    Is the router a wireless-N router? If so, I don't believe the stock HTC kernel supports it.

    If your phone is rooted I can link you to a kernel that would work

    Yes it is a wireless N router.

    Just looked at the specs for Evo4G from HTC
    HTC EVO? 4G - Sprint: Cell Phones & Smartphones

    For some reason I thought it can handle 802.11 b/g/n.
    Guess not.
    I feel quite the fool.

    Which kernel is this you speak off? :)

    Well, basically any of the custom kernels for rooted phones support it.

    If the phone is rooted I can make some suggestions, if not and you are curious about the process I can link you to the rooting guide that you would need. I will need your H-boot number to do so and that will require you to pull the battery out of the phone, put it back in, and hold power+volume down. This will bring you to your H-boot screen and post your h-boot number (should be along the lines of2.16 or 2.18
