Yeah, you can now go buy a Linksys at wal-mart that is both 2.4 and 5 so
it's now spilling over to the 5ghz.  I have a customer who has one but
unfortunately you can't operate both the 2.4 and 5 at the same time, it's
either or.  I found that odd and the customer has 2 new laptops that have
2.4 and 5 as well as some older stuff on 2.4.  Even HE thought he could do
both together because his new laptops can do that just fine.  Maybe a third
party firmware will solve that but it was just "wtf" when I tried to set him
up in both bands.

In 5 GHz (the home of 802.11a) there are a few hundred MHz available.  All 
the home routers really should be in 5 GHz.
