Roku Express and No 5G

I've looked through the various forums, but I'm coming up empty so I thought I'd throw this out here:
New Roku Express (3900x) - will only "see" my 2.4Ghz network which is too slow for proper playback (the Roku even says so itself).
I logged into my router and changed the SSID to both a low station (36) and a high one (157) - neither time could it find my 5 ghz network.

A couple of questions: 

1. Does the Roku Express even support 5Ghz (some forum posts said no)?

2. If it DOES support 5ghz, is there something else I should try?
Thanks,

Don't think it supports 5Ghz.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Re: Roku Express and No 5G

Yeah, I kind of ruled out any other reasons why I couldn't get it to work other than an act of God to make it 5ghz compatible

Re: Roku Express and No 5G

I have 5 Roku Expresses scattered throughout my 3400 sq ft home with double-paned storm windows and doors, including one in the farthest corner of the garage and another on a wall mount outside by the pool. None of them have any issue streaming anything through my Arris wifi cable modem that sits on top of the entertainment center in the family room at the back of the house. 2.4ghz band works fine for me.
