    Off the wall thought, are you using channel, 12, 13 or 14 on the router and using a WiFi card/driver that can only work up to channel 11 ?
    I don't know, I'll check it and I'll tell you what I'll find.

    I have found that Channel 3 and 8 have worked out a lot better than the standard channels for the 2.4ghz radio on my Wireless-AC AP. It was a matter of research to find that out for Dual Band A/P's.

    Yeah finally I found the problem, its as you said the channel, I changed it to 11 and the problem is solved.
    Thank you.

    You will find that some devices will not see your Wifi on Channel 11. Especially if they use Wireless-b/g on 2.4ghz. I would use inSSIDer or another tool to find a less congested channel and maybe try Channel 3, which is working very well for me.

    Some routers scan for the least congested band to use... perhaps that is what happened and it decided something above Ch11 was the clearest.
