GoPro 6 connectction to PC via WiFi fails

I want to connect gorpo to PC via wifi. Win 8.1 / 10

Adapter is Archer T2UH it works on 2.4/5Ghz

 

When i choose 5Ghz it doesnt shows anything. What usb adapter i need to connect on 5Ghz?

 

If i choose 2.4 i can see it, but when i try to connect it fails.

Other adapters connect well and works fine.

Whats the problem?

@toughstar65158 - The HERO6 can connect to smartphones via wifi and the GoPro app, but there is not a wifi connection available to computers. To connect to your computer, you'll want to to use the USB cable that came with your GoPro. Download and in stall Quik for Desktop, connect the camera to the computer, and power on the camera. Quik should recognize the camera then.

It's because the geniuses at GoPro are using a wifi band that isn't supported anywhere in Europe. Your device needs to support the high frequency 5GHz band C up around 5.8GHz. New Apple and Samsung Flagships seem to work.
