Can't detect 5 ghz band?

I have a D-link DIR-825 router broadcasting wifi networks on 2.4 and 5 Ghz. My PC can detect and connect to the 2.4 GHZ no problem, but it can't seem to detect the 5 GHZ one.

My laptop and my cell phone have no trouble detecting both networks. Thoughts?

PC is brand new, asus p8z77-v mobo, using the NIC that comes with that which is atheros AR9485 chip I believe? I updated drivers for it last night, no effect. The PC is about 5-6 feet away from the router so there should not be any range issues. Not really sure what's goin on, anyone able to shed some light?
