Xbox Slim can't connect to a 5GHz channel?

So I have a router which has a 5GHz channel, which I assume is a better connection and should be better for my Xbox. However, my Xbox doesn't recognize it. It recognizes the 2.4GHz channel, but not the 5GHz channel, which I assume would be the better connection.

Is there any way to fix this? Or am I kidding myself and the 2.4GHz channel is of the same/better quality?

Correct the slim cannot connect with the inbuilt adapter at 5Ghz, only the external twin antenna can connect at 5Ghz
