    My router menu may be different, but I should un-check Enable SSID Broadcast to disable 2.4GHz, in the order to switch to 5GHz.

    You should be able to have both 2.4 and 5Ghz active and broadcasting their SSID. From your Laptop, you just select the 5Ghz SSID which you show as NETGEAR39-5G. Enter the password and Connect and that should be all you have to do.

    Does your Laptop show you NETGEAR39-5G? If not then it's not capable of receiving the 5Ghz signal.

    I am connected to NETGEAR39-5G, but the thing is that it is going as slow as 2.4GHz. I do not want 2.4GHz.

    The only control you have is the node you connect to. Since you are connected to NETGEAR39-5G and not NETGEAR39 then you are connected to a 5Ghz node. What does speedtest show you? Goto speedtest.net and try it.

    I've never seen download speeds from the Internet any better between 2.4 and 5 on my Network. But I do see some improvement between the 802.11b/g/n and the newer 802.11ac Wi-Fi. From the computers to the Router and Modem is one thing, the Internet from the Modem out is something else. Most of my Notebooks have the 802.11n and one has 802.11ac while my Router is 10/100/100 [Gigabit] with 802.11n Wireless.

    I am only connected to NETGEAR39-5G, and here is my network speed test.

    My test:

    I'm paying for 12Mbps and nearly always get it, this connection is using the 5g Wireless/Wi-Fi from my Notebook to the Router/Modem. Modem is using Wireless DSL [not the same as Wi-Fi networking]. Upload speeds most usually are less than download speed. I always use Change Server to somewhere away from my local service provider to get a bit more true diagnostic, the one shown is halfway across the state.

    You appear to be limited not by the WiFi adapter or your router, but by the speed your ISP is providing for you.
    My ISP gives me a maximum download speed of 50Mbps and even a 2.4GHz WiFi adapter can easily run at that speed, as mine does here:

    How can I speed up the Internet connection in the terms of ISP?

    So again, how can I speed up the Internet connection in the terms of ISP?

    Talk to your ISP about their plan levels and cost, faster will always have higher prices to go with the higher speeds. If I wanted 25Mbps I'd have to pay an additional $20 monthly. Sometimes faster also requires different equipment from the ISP.
