Hi Indest, I tested the command with two different systems and in both cases 802.11ac was showing up.
Let's verify VHT mode is enabled in the advanced tab of the adapter properties window. Please indicate if you have modified any settings with the Administrator Tool.

Hi JohnS, I'm curious about something.
When ever we have an issue with these adapters, you seem to always say "Troubleshoot with us" or ask us some ignorant question like you legitimately don't know what the issue is.
Isn't troubleshooting and releasing updates your job?
Here's a suggestion: Buy a notebook with your adapter and try using it like a normal person. You'll quickly see what we are all saying. Then, you can do your own troubleshooting! Isn't that amazing??
