Default Toshiba P770 internal WIFI adaptor replacement.. (Atheros AR9002WB-1NG)

Hi all
So i got a brand spankin new really nice, really fast home network going..

I need to replace this internal WIFI adaptor tho. Toshiba shipped this P770 with a Atheros AR9002WB-1NG. I am running 5hz single band and getting 30mbps @ our cell phones, my work laptop which is a primiative dell lattitude.. the ps4, dish hopper and etc.
Ive googled for hours and looked at tons of posts and forums. And ive seen some say this Atheros even tho it says its 5ghz compat really isnt. Its not even picking up my network. If i put on the 2.4ghz it ll find it just fine.

So i think the card is bad, OR like some said in forums - toshiba dumbs down things sometimes to make them compat so either way.. i gotta replace this.

ive seen alot of people who have the P770 and it works great on 5ghz just with a diff card. No one named thier card.

Anyone have help for me on how to find out what "type" of internal wifi adaptor i need? im sure ebay or tiger direct or etc can be found to sell em.. and i dont want an external one (3 yr old + toys that are hammers to him = no good)
thnx all!
