I have been researching USB wireless adapters and the dual band models sound interesting. ÂI'm wondering though if this feature is wasted unless your router is dual band.

If you mean MIMO: Some models can enable MIMO on the receiving side
even if the AP is SISO. It doesn't help much, since the receiver still
only has a single antenna.

If you mean 2.4Ghz/5Ghz 802.11n or 802.11g vs 802.11a: This only helps
of the AP has both.
