    I've got a mid 2012 rMBP. When I set my router to 5ghz wifi, it works fine on my iPad and iPhone, but the Macbook Pro doesn't see the wireless network in the network list.

    This is really frustrating me, as this Mac is supposed to support 5ghz!

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Just noticed this in my Airport Extreme info

    Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0xEF)
    Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (
    MAC Address: 14:10:9f:e2:80:0d
    Locale: ETSI
    Country Code: YE
    Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 a/b/g
    Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
    Wake On Wireless: Supported
    AirDrop: Supported
    Status: Connected

    It seems there as though 802.11n is not supported.. but it should be

    Your 5GHz radio is likely bad, it is however strange it is showing 802.11a, but the only 5GHz channel in that list is 11 which I would guess is not supported in your country.

    I would get your machine looked at by Apple.
