I have a Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter that comes with my laptop and currently the adapter can only see 2.4GHz networks while it's capable of connecting to 5GHz networks.  I found out that if I change my adapter from 20MHz to 40MHz, I can see WiFi networks that are at 5GHz but am still looking for where the option is to make the switch in Windows 8.
