2.4 GHz vs 5 GHz Wifi Network

The wifi shield is able to scan, find, and connect to my 2.4 GHz wifi network, but it cannot do the same with 5 GHz wifi. Is that the expected behavior?

Hi, the WiFi shield has these capabilities. http://www.atmel.com/devices/atwinc1500.aspx

5GHz is not supported.

Thanks Kwabena! That was the exact info I was looking for. Cheers!
