To find out if the adapter supports 5GHz you can always check with iwlist.

comment How do I make ecryptfs automount in xubuntu?
I don't think that's a duplicate. I want to know how does the installer set it up, and how do I make it work again as if the installer set it up..

comment How to enable or disable services?
@LuisAlvarado No. Your screenshots of text are really absurd and annoying and there are no benefits to your method of echoing "manual" to init.d/ or simply using update-rc.d. Further, half of your answer doesn't address the question: stopping and starting a service is not enabling or disabling it . And, even worse: you repeat all of your text-screen caps when a simple note, *alternatively you can run /etc/init.d/<service> <command> instead of service <service> <command> would suffice. It's as if you're goal was to waste vertical answer-space.

comment How to enable or disable services?
Just use update-rc.d. Upstart is going away, and update-rc.d always worked. This answer is bunk and the abuse of screen picks for terminal results is absurd and annoying.

@Christian Opus deos not have specialized support for speech. And, the problems of compounded failures still persist: anytime you encode in opus, you'll incur a loss in quality whether or not it is noticeable is subjective.
